Resumen In 1996 a serious accident occurred at a fossil fuel power plant in Iran, when a worker who was moving thermal insulation materials around the plant noticed a shiny, pencil-sized metal object and placed it in his pocket. He was unaware that the metal object was an unshielded source of iridium 192 used in industrial radiography. This report compiles information about the medical and other aspects of the accident. As a result of exposure to the iridium source, the worker suffered from severe haematopoietic syndrome and an unusually extended localized radiation injury requiring plastic surgery.
