Resumen In a wood processing plant 25 workers, exposed to formaldehyde when handling urea-formaldehyde binders, were subjected to repeated cytogenic analysis of peripheral lymphocytes. Formaldehyde concentrations in the workplace air ranged from 0.1 to 0.9mg/m3 and never exceeded the MAC. In the summer season of 1982 and 1983, the frequencies of aberrant cells were 1.48 and 1.95%, respectively (in controls 1.57%); in winter (1983 and 1984), they were 3.17 and 2.13%. These results indicate a greater genetic risk for workers in the winter months.
