Resumen The difficulties involved in showing the relationship between occupational exposure and bladder cancer, due to the delayed appearance of the disease (averaging 20 years after exposure) and the problem of establishing the complete occupational history of patients are dealt with. The reasons are given why in France, compared to other European countries, very few cases of bladder cancer are recognised as occupational diseases. General practitioners are advised to find out the occupational history of bladder cancer patients, if not under the care of industrial physicians. Particularly at risk are workers in the chemical (especially dye manufacturing), textile and rubber industries, those working in laboratories and with pesticides.
