Thinner (Toluene), that is used as a solvent in industrial area, is an aromatic hydrocarbon material. Because it is cheap and easy attainable, it is common in all over the world. Toluene is commonly abused by inhaling to get a sensation of euphoria. Our case is a 40 year old male who was developed skin lesions by thinner self-injection to eight different part of his body. Abccess formation was developed at his injection areas but no systemic signs were observed in this case. Many local and systemic signs are developed after thinner abuse. These signs can be acute or chronic. This skin lesion that occured after administration of thinner in an uncommon way is considerably demonstrative in the present case.
