||Occupational asthma caused by sculptured nails containing methacrylates
||Dec. 2008, Vol.51, No.12, p.968-974. Illus. 31 ref.
||This article presents two clinical cases of occupational asthma caused by methacrylates among nail technicians applying artificial nails. In both cases, occupational asthma was diagnosed on the basis of a work simulation test combined with the patient's history of occupational exposure and respiratory symptoms. Asthmatic reactions were observed in the bronchial provocation test with methacrylates. Implications are discussed.
