Título Contact dermatitis in printing tradesmen
Información bibliográfica May 1986, Vol.14, No.5, p.280-287. 20 ref.
Resumen During a 2-year period in Toronto, Canada, 21 printing tradesmen with contact dermatitis were evaluated. 67% had allergic contact dermatitis; 29% due to ultraviolet-cured ink components. Irritant contact dermatitis accounted for 33% of the cases. The prognosis in printing tradesmen with contact deratitis is guarded, except for those with allergic contact dermatitis due to UV-cured components, as the tradesmen who were sensitised to other contactants eventually left the trade. Offset lithography was associated with the problem in 18 of the 21 cases. A brief outline is given of the printing processes in common use.
