Título Silico-mycobacterial disease in sandblasters.
Información bibliográfica Aug. 1974, Vol.110, No.2, p.115-125. Illus. 19 ref.
Resumen An investigation carried out in New Orleans secured environmental data that demonstrate heavy concentrations of respirable free silica in and outside protective hoods accounting for the high incidence and accelerated course of silicosis in sandblasters. 22 of 83 silicotic sandblasters investigated had complicating mycobacterial infections. The mean age of the men was 44 years and the average exposure to silica less than 10 years. The radiographic and pulmonary physiological findings for this group of workers are summarised and information given concerning immunological disorders associated with silicosis and silicobacteriosis.
