The acute mental status changes associated with inhaled solvent use have been well described.1 The potential long-term neuropsychiatric sequelae of inhaled solvent use are not as well characterized. We present here the case of a 20-year-old male with a 7-year history of inhaled solvent (toluene) use whose neurological and psychiatric status were followed closely over a 1-month period on an inpatient psychiatric unit.
