Abstract A 7-year longitudinal study was carried out on the risk of coronaropathy in workers exposed to carbon disulfide. An increased number of the subjects with manifestations of positive and probable ischaemic heart disease was observed, no increase being found among the controls. The significance of carbon disulfide as a basic risk factor to and as a potentiator of the effects of smoking and hypertension still cannot be determined.
