Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0005038

NCI Thesaurus Code: C44397  (see NCI Thesaurus info)

Semantic Type: Organic Chemical

Semantic Type: Hazardous or Poisonous Substance

Semantic Type: Pharmacologic Substance

NCIt Definition: The gamma-isomer of benzene hexachloride, a colorless to white colored, synthetic, crystalline solid with a slight musty odor that emits toxic fumes of hydrochloric acid and other chlorinated compounds when heated to decomposition. Lindane is used as an insecticide for hardwood logs, lumber, and crops. Lindane also has topical pediculicide and scabicide activities probably due to its neurotoxic effects. Inhalation exposure to this substance causes severe irritation of the nose and throat, causes anemia, and affects the liver, nervous, cardiovascular, and immune system. Lindane is reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen.

CSP Definition: gamma isomer of benzene hexachloride, a carcinogenic insecticide more potent than DDT (chlorophenothane); it is used to kill lice and mites, applied topically to the skin.

MSH Definition: An organochlorine insecticide that has been used as a pediculicide and a scabicide. It has been shown to cause cancer.
