Abstract: 

Background
Lindane is an insecticide which is used in commercial insecticides and food containers.
Case presentation
Herein, we reported on a 62-year-old man with liver cirrhosis 12 years after continuous exposure to lindane gas.The diagnostic workup showed no other possible cause, and findings of liver scintigraphy and clinical manifestations were probably compatible with substance-induced cirrhosis.
Conclusion
Chronic exposure to lindane probably may cause hepatotoxicity and cirrhosis in human.
