Toxicodendron Tox·i·co·den·dron (tŏk'sĭ-kō-děn'drŏn')
An alternative genus for six species of poison ivies and poison oaks within the genus Rhus.
By far the most valuable work on Rhus toxicodendron is that of Pfaff.
The oil obtained by Pfaff from Rhus venenata seemed to be identical with that from Rhus toxicodendron.
Not many cases of internal poisoning by Rhus toxicodendron are on record in medical literature.
