The methodology used was a systematic exploratory review, with a search strategy, carried out in open access databases of Scopus, Redalyc and SciELO, the selection was made by decantations, based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria, in addition to the support of the study variables, for the selection of the 32 relevant articles. The results corroborate the affectations produced by the exposure to benzene and it is concluded that it is necessary to carry out studies that identify extreme exposures according to compliance with international standards; it is opportune that in Ecuador this topic is deepened and workers exposed to benzene are trained.
