Información bibliográfica Apr. 1982, Vol.32, No.2, p.66-72. Illus. 14 ref.
Resumen The sputum of 150 individuals exposed to flax dust was collected on 3 consecutive days and tested for fungal growth. Skin test were also performed for the positive culture of Aspergillus species. Of the workers examined 74 showed fungal growth, and the strains discovered in order of frequency were A.mucor, A.niger, A.fumigatus, A.flavus, Candida albicans, yeast, trichithisum and penicillium. A.fumigatus was not discovered in 119 control subjects not exposed to flax dust. The role of fungi in initiating the occurrence of byssinosis is discussed.
