Symptoms reported for humans suggest that a toxic effect on the nervous system follows trichothecene exposure. Persons allegedly exposed to “yellow rain” complained of nausea, headache, confusion, decreased memory, anxiety, decreased visual and auditory acuity, decreased sense of balance and libido, anorexia, fever, and seizures. Patients with alimentary toxic aleukia (ATA) demonstrated impaired nervous reflexes, depression, hyperesthesia, disorientation, delirium, hallucinations, headaches, hypalgesia, paresis, and loss of taste, smell, vision, hearing, and/or memory.
