Chloracne: a severe acneiform skin disease that is seen in humans after high industrial or accidental exposure to chlorinated compounds, esp. dioxins. A threshold level above which chloracne occurs has not been established. The dose range where chloracne was reported in Seveso, was 800 to 56,000 ng/kg (TCDD in fat), but some persons with levels up to 10,000 ng/kg did not have chloracne. [1]
