Título Estudio epidemiológico retrospectivo: A propósito de 100 casos de silicosis
Información bibliográfica Apr.-June 1982, Vol.30, No.118, p.76-82.
Resumen Aspects studied in this randomly selected group of patients: age, sex, length of exposure, degree of silicosis, type of work, contamination source, personal history, and the individual criteria in relation to degree of silicosis. The 3 grades of silicosis were most frequent at ages 46-50 years (although grade III was present before the age of 45) and after exposure of 15-20 years. Hammerpick miners constituted the majority of patients in all 3 grades. There was a high incidence of intercurrent pathology (chronic bronchitis in 90%, chronic alcoholism, tobacco use, rheumatism). Recommendations are made regarding health education of workers, early detection, development of a health programme, improvement of mining techniques
