Título Contact dermatitis in workers processing polyvinyl chloride plastics
Información bibliográfica 1985, Vol.33, No.3, p.104-105. 13 ref.
Resumen Results of patch tests of 2 groups (30 with and 30 without skin lesions) chosen from 400 workers in a plastic shoe factory. The tests included a standard battery of substances plus 4 phthalates widely used as plasticisers. Of the 11 workers with contact dermatitis, 6 were sensitive to phthalates and 5 to coal tar (also present in the granulated vinyl raw material). Reactions to dioctyl phthalate were even more numerous among the asymptomatic subjects than among the others, which shows the high sensitising potential of phthalates.
