||Occupational allergic contact dermatitis in Lodz: 1990-1994
||June 1996, Vol.46, No.3, p.205-208. 8 ref.
||Among 1,619 patients examined between 1990 and 1994 at the Nofer Institute of Occupational Medicine in Lodz, Poland, occupational allergic contact dermatitis (OACD) was confirmed in 332 cases. OACD was most frequent among health service workers, metal-working and machine-building workers and in the building industry. The most frequent cause was contact with metals, in particular chromates, cobalt and nickel. Other sources of sensitivity were disinfecting agents (formaldehyde), resins, rubber and fragrances. Data indicate an overall increase in OACD cases compared with the period 1972-1987.
