||A study of 15 cases of neuropathy in an Italian shoe and leather-goods factory, occurring in the period 1975-1980. Data were collected on symptoms, length of disease, factory output, concentration of various chemicals in the air of the factory (compared with their TLV's). Polyneuropathy, due to the presence of n-hexane in the air, disappeared once preventive measures eliminated its cause.
