Hepatic angiosarcoma is known to have associated with carcinogens including vinyl chloride, thorotrast and arsenic.
Neurologic effects, pregnancy and delivery problems of pregnant women, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, respiratory disorders, cardiovascular problems, cirrhosis, lung cancer, cutaneous cancers, urinary system cancers, hepatic angiosarcoma, leukemia, and lymphoma may occur.
Successful examples include reductions in lung cancer and mesothelioma following bans on asbestos, reductions in bladder cancer after elimination of aniline dyes, reductions in leukemia following imposition of controls on benzene, and termination of hepatic angiosarcoma in chemical workers following introduction of closed-circuit technology for vinyl chloride polymerization (Christiani 2011).
