Work-related asthma in aluminium potroom workers, is reviewed and discussed, mainly on the basis of own investigations.
The occurrence of work-related asthma has been shown to be associated with the duration of potroom employment, although the prevalence of asthmatic symptoms is not significantly different from that of the general population.
Typical manifestations of occupational asthma are described in potroom workers, and a close relationship between the levels of fluoride exposure and work-reltedc asthmatic symptoms has been observed.
