  1. Absence of symptoms in silver refiners with raised blood silver levels.

    Article - En anglais

    Silver has been implicated as a cause of ill health, related largely to its use in the medical setting as a treatment for burns and in prosthetic cements.

    This report discusses occupational silver exposure in two workers with blood silver levels of 49 mug/l and 74 mug/l who were asymptomatic and showed no signs of argyric neuropathy which has previously been described at blood silver levels as low as 10 mug/l. One of the men showed non-characteristic clinical signs of argyrosis.

    The clinical findings, results of environmental monitoring and effects of environmental improvements on blood silver levels are discussed.
