||A survey of occupational dermatoses, based on a questionnaire, clinical examination and patch testing, was carried out among 341 workers in a Swedish aircraft plant. The questionnaire was answered by 330 workers (96.8%). Present or previous skin disease was reported by 92 employees, who were all subjected to physical examination and patch testing. Patch testing was conducted with a standard series, as well as with a series of substances and products representing the work environment, including anticorrosion paints, adhesives, sealants and detergents. Occupational contact allergies were established in 12 employees. In total, the figure for occupational skin diseases was 16.1% (55 workers), when calculated for all employees.
