Abstract This article reports the case of 28-year-old female worker who, four months after beginning work in a powder-coating factory, developed asthma-like symptoms. At her workplace, aluminium frames were treated with an electrostatic powder paint containing 2.5-10% triglycidyl isocyanurate (TGIC). Various examinations were conducted (spirometry, immunological response, challenge tests). It is concluded that that TGIC inhalation induced immunologic occupational asthma, although no IgE mechanism was evidenced.
