||Clinical evaluation of 58 organolead manufacturing workers
||Apr. 1996, Vol.38, No.4, p.372-378. Illus. 34 ref.
||58 workers were evaluated clinically and through laboratory examinations for potential health effects related to organic and inorganic lead exposures. Workers reported symptoms that predominantly involved central (CNS) and peripheral (PNS) nervous systems. Findings for which no alternative medical explanations could be found included neurobehavioural abnormalities (18 out of 39 workers) and sensorimotor polyneuropathies (11 out of 31 workers). It was pointed out that this was a case series, not an epidemiological study, and that in these workers there was more of a CNS rather than a PNS involvement.
