Resumen Epidemiological study of virus warts on the hands of employees of a large meat processing factory (pork, beef). Of 1,141 employees examined, 687 were constantly handling meat. Detailed study of the various departments of the factory (deboning, butchery, processing, storage, packing, cookhouse, etc.). According to type of employment, prevalence of warts varied between 33.6% and 70.4% in employees handling meat, and between 18.2 and 44.4 in non-meat handlers. In 50% of these cases the workers concerned were unaware of the development of warts (especially plane warts).
