  1. Occupation and risk of uveal melanoma : an exploratory study.

    Article - En anglais


    Little is known about the cause of uveal melanoma, the most common primary intraocular malignant lesion in adults.

    This population-based case-control study evaluated occupational exposures.


    One hundred ninety-seven newly diagnosed cases of uveal melanoma participated.

    Approximately two control subjects matched for age, sex, and telephone exchange area were selected for each case by random-digit dialing.

    Data were collected by a structured telephone interview.

    Two systems of occupational coding were used: an occupation-exposure linkage system and the Bureau of Census data.
