We report on five patients who developed mucous membrane irritation after inhalational exposure to an interior use latex paint containing the organotin compound bis(tributyltin) oxide. Stricter regulations regarding the use of bis(tributyltin) oxide with interior paint would most likely have prevented these cases of triburyltin toxicity. Bis(tributytin) oxide should not be used with paint intended for interior use.
