||These three brief communications are in response to a previous article on the causes, symptoms and management of sick-building syndrome (see CIS 97-1178). Factors highlighted include the contribution of extremely dry air to the dessication of skin and mucous membranes, and the role of mycotoxins. A new entity known as slab syndrome, associated with newly-built houses in India, is also described. There is a further reply by the original authors.
