Información bibliográfica June 2008, Vol.58, No.6, p.322-329. Illus. 23 ref.
Resumen The aim of the Prospective Audi Cohort (PACO) II follow-up study was to estimate the burden and prognosis of hand eczema (HE) in an automobile industry setting in a long-term perspective (> 10 years). Eligible participants were 1909 subjects who had been examined in a previous study and had been followed through until the end of their apprenticeship. Participants were interviewed and underwent dermatological examination. An exposure assessment was carried out according to a pre-defined algorithm. The follow-up rate was 78.3%. Mean follow-up time was 13.3 years and the cumulative incidence of 29.3% for the entire study period. HE persisted after the end of apprenticeship in 40.0% of subjects who had had HE during apprenticeship. 18.0% developed HE in the follow-up period. Around 30% of subjects were affected by HE at least once during the study period.
