It is widely known that carbon dioxide (CO) arc welding generates carbon monoxide (CO). However, to the best of our knowledge, no case reports have been published regarding CO poisoning in CO arc welders. Therefore, we aimed to report a case of CO poisoning-induced encephalopathy in a CO arc welder in the Republic of Korea to inform about the dangers of CO exposure among COarc welders.
