Occupational asthma in greenhouse tomato growing.
An employee working in a commercial tomato growing greenhouse developed asthma of increasing severity over a period of 8 years.
She was diagnosed as having occupational asthma by a chest physician.
The cause was obscure and initial allergy testing was negative.
Further investigation of the workplace gave rise to suspicion of allergy to insects.
Immunological testing confirmed sensitization to Red Spider Mite.
