Because of its peculiar physical properties which promote a different type of initial distribution in the tissues when it is absorbed as compared to the water-soluble compounds of lead, tetraethyl lead offers an especially interesting field for investigation. Its high selective affinity for fat-containing tissues and for the nervous system has been known for some time. Its wide distribution in a low concentration in motor fuels has raised the question whether there is absorption of lead through the skin of persons who come in contact with such gasoline, and whether lead thus absorbed may be expected to accumulate in nervous
