Resumen A study of 157 workers, including potroom workers and workers engaged in dust collection and fluoride salt production. Gastrointestinal pathology was found in 96.8% of the workers. Chronic gastritis was the most frequent symptom, with both the presence and absence of fluorosis. Gastritis developed like ulcers, with erosion of the gastric mucosa in 15.7% of the workers without fluorosis and 34.4% of the fluorotic workers. Workers exposed to fluorine compounds often had duodenal ulcers. Preventive measures must be reinforced, and efforts should be made toward the early detection of chronic gastritis and ulcers.
