#ExistInterpData>Urinary antimony levels predominantly reflect chronic exposure. Urine concentrations in unexposed individuals rarely exceed 1 µg/L and urine antimony concentrations greater than 10 µg/L are indicative of significant and potentially toxic antimony exposure. Occupationally exposed but asymptomatic individuals with urine antimony concentrations of up to 300 µg/L have been described. The form of antimony greatly influences elimination with approximately 50 percent of the pentavalent and 10 percent of the trivalent form present in the urine within 24 hours after exposure. Reported symptoms after toxic antimony exposure vary based upon route of exposure, duration and antimony source and may include abdominal pain, dyspnea, nausea, vomiting, dermatitis and eye irritation. Clinical presentation is similar to that of inorganic arsenic exposure.
