Title Trichloroethylene and concomitant contact dermatitis in an art painter
Bibliographic information June 1996, Vol.34, No.6, p.430-431. Illus. 8 ref.
Abstract A brief case report is presented of an art painter who developed chronic dermatitis and eczematous skin lesions following daily contact with trichloroethylene (TCE) over a period of four years. The lesions cleared when the painter stopped working with TCE but eczema developed on both hands when holding TCE-painted pictures.
