Abstract

Cobalt Poisoning: A Comprehensive Review of the Literature

Cobalt is a chemical element that has been used for centuries recreationally as pigments for colouring, giving the bluish hue to glass. Cobalt Poisoning can be manifested by a wide array of systemic effects. Cobalt poisoning can be seen as a result of super alloys in orthopaedic implants, ionizing radiation, occupational exposure and rarely as a foam stabilizer in beer. Here in we conduct a review of the literature describing the systemic adverse effects of cobalt poisoning along with the respective toxicity levels that have been attributed to multisystem pathology.
