In brief: BAL = dimercaprol
Bal is "british anti-lewisite", a prescription medication given by injection for the removal of heavy metals such as lead and mercury.
(it also combats lewisite, an arsenic-based chemical warfare agent). Overdose symptoms include nausea, vomiting, drowsiness, and seizure (convulsions). Treatment is supportive with protection of the airway, intravenous fluids, and a tincture of time.

In brief: Don't understand
Is your meaning of bal the medical abbreviation for bronchoalveolar lavage or something else? If the former, this question makes no sense.
