Resumen MD thesis. The use of light-sensitive plastic resin plates on rotary presses has given rise to interolerance to plastics among operators. A general section on the main printing techniques, eczema and irritative dermatitis, and plastic resins, is followed by a report on an occupational health survey at a large newspaper printers employing the letterflex process: machines and mode of operation, nature of the resin and allergological study. A polythiol in the resin was found to be responsible for the allergy. 17 cases of skin and respiratory intolerance are presented, and similar phenomena were sought in other printing shops and using other procedures (Nyloprint, acrylics, polyurethanes). The symptoms were controlled by prevention measures: push-pull ventilation, maintenance of constant temperature and humidity in the workshop, use of protective gloves and barrier creams, showers after work.
