Hydrogen chloride caused irritation and damage to the skin, eyes, respiratory tract and mouth in humans and laboratory animals and damage to the teeth in humans. Acute inhalation toxicity in humans and animals was high. Single or repeated inhalation exposures have damaged the lungs, liver, kidneys and vascular system of various laboratory animals. Exposure of rats to maternally toxic atmospheric concentrations gave some evidence of reproductive effects. There was no evidence of carcinogenic activity in fairly limited studies of male rats which inhaled hydrogen chloride for life.
