||Copper and cadmium contact eczema in welders, polishers, electroplaters and similar workers
||Über Kupfer- und Kadmium-Kontaktekzeme bei Schweissern, Schleifern, Galvaniseuren und ähnlichen Berufsgruppen [in German]|

||A review of previous systematic studies (see CIS 64-975) is followed by a report on the skin testing of 256 metalworkers, with particular reference to cadmium sensitization. Clinical findings and medical histories in 9 positive reactions to cadmium sulfate are described, and 5 positive reactions to copper sulfate are analysed. Sensitization is due primarily to exposure to dust and, in the case of cadmium, to contact with cadmium metal or cadmium-containing liquids. Cadmium and copper should form part of the skin test battery whenever metal allergy is suspected. Potential exposure areas in industry are tabulated.
