||In a retrospective cohort study of 2,923 Swedish bakers, the incidence of hand eczema among males was 16.7 cases/1,000 person-years, compared with 4.4-5.4 among male controls. The corresponding figures for women were 34.4 compared with 11.3-14.1. Skin atopy increased the incidence about threefold and a synergistic effect of atopy and exposure was indicated. Also, bakers had changed job significantly more often than controls.
