Título Multifactorial genesis of laryngeal cancers in an oil hardening department
Título original Multifaktorielle Genese eines Kehlkopfkarzinoms in einer Ölhärterei [en alemán]
Información bibliográfica Apr. 1992, Vol.27, No.4, p.137-139. Illus. 16 ref.
Resumen A group of 29 workers employed in the oil-bath hardening section of a foundry in Germany and a control group of 40 workers received medical examinations of the larynx. Measurements in the oil-bath hardening area yielded benzo(a)pyrene concentrations between 23 and 36ng/m3, a respirable dust concentration of 2.21mg/m3 with a quartz content of 4%, noise levels ranging from 85 to 95dB(A) and room temperatures of 29.2 to 30°C at a relative humidity of 13%. A highly significant incidence of laryngeal cancers was found for the workers of the oil-bath hardening department, 4 versus none in the control group. Laryngeal disorders were far higher than in the control group, 76% versus 27%. There were more and heavier smokers in the control group than in the exposed group.
