  1. Compensatability and contact dermatitis in the canning industry.

    Article - En anglais

    If reports from the Workmen's Compensation Commissioner are compared with international figures, dermatitis in South African industry appears to be underestimated.

    Compensation for occupational dermatitis in South Africa relies on the presence of a positive patch test.

    A prevalence study at a canning factory in the western Cape showed high rates of dermatoses.

    No association could be shown between dermatitis, intertrigo or chronic paronychia and patch-test positivity.
