Title Role of microscopic fungi and mycotoxins in occupational pathology
Original title Rolja na mikroskopičnite găbi i mikotoksinite v profesionalnata patologija [in Bulgarian]
Bibliographic information 1987, Vol.30, No.3, p.89-94. 53 ref.
Abstract Dermatotoxicoses and respiratory mycotoxicoses are mainly of occupational origin. The role of moulds in the aetiology of chronic pulmonary diseases is described, the initial allergic reaction being of great importance, followed by a lasting allergic state with added chronic toxic action by the fungi. Data on occupational morbidity in an environment containing mycotoxins are presented.
