Arsine poisoning is a well-recognized phenomenon generally associated with the smelting and refining of metals. However, acute episodes of arsine poisoning do occur in environments unrelated to metal processing and often go unrecognized. The incident described herein, which deals with artists working on the restoration of a famous painting, illustrates that arsine gas may evolve in any situation where nascent hydrogen comes in contact with small amounts of arsenic.
