Abstract A register of mesothelioma cases is maintained by the Employment Medical Advisory Service of the Department of Employment. This paper describes an investigation of 413 notifications to the Register in 1967-68 from England, Wales and Scotland. Cases were described as definite when histological confirmation of diagnosis had been obtained. 246 cases were accepted as definite, 76 were regarded as "definitely not" mesothelioma. The remainder were classified as undecided. The investigation covers clinical aspects, survival and evidence of exposure to asbestos.
