    Hexachlorophene is an antibacterial agent widely used in soaps and antiseptic solutions because of its low toxicity and high bactericidal properties. It is used in agriculture as a fungicide on citrus fruits and a number of vegetables. Toxicity from either ingestion or topical application can occur, however. This paper will present four deaths related to hexachlorophene exposure, two acute and two chronic.
