Cobaltism

COBALTISM:

Is a medical condition in which there is an excessive level of cobalt, a metal, in the body. While Cobalt is essential for health in minute amounts, in excessive amounts it is toxic and can lead to damage of multiple organs leading to deafness, blindness, headaches, peripherperal neruopathy cognitive decline, heart problems and kidney failure.

Cobaltism is one side-effect of metal-on-metal rubbing of artificial hip joints which led to the recall of the DePuy ASR hip implant systems.
