Abstract This MD thesis considers 3 groups of contagious diseases of recent occurrence in our environment. Currently available data are used to determine if they can be linked to certain occupations, with consequent implications for occupational medicine, with a view to possible amendments to labour legislation. The thesis is mainly concerned with the ecological and epidemiological characteristics of these diseases, their clinical aspects, the occupations at risk, and case studies in the working environment. Prophylaxis is also considered.
