Original title Berufskrankheiten der Melkerhand [in German]
Bibliographic information Aug. 1972, Vol.20, No.4, p.166-173. Illus. 45 ref.
Abstract Classification and description of the clinical pictures of interdigital moniliasis, milkers' eczema, interdigital fistular granulomatosis, milkers' nodule, palmar hyperkeratosis and chronic occupational osteopathy. The authors report on 30 cases that they have observed personally and point to the influence of 3 aetiopathogenic factors: a mycotic factor, a viral factor and a traumatic-type physical factor. The authors claim that irritant and sensitising factors play only a negligible part.
