||Study of 38 workers engaged in electrochemical nickel plating. Although nickel sulfate vapour in the air of the shop was well below the maximum allowable concentration, 25 of the workers had complaints of nasal discharge, sneezing, dryness and obstructions in the throat. Tissue abnormalities were found in the noses and larynxes of 34 workers, with allergic reactions being most common. All types of pathology observed, except chronic tonsillitis, were more frequent than in a control group. Whereas the frequency of chronic rhinitis was about the same at all age and seniority levels, allergic changes in the upper respiratory mucosae increased in frequency with length of service.
