A case is described of complex reactions associated with exposure to diphenylmethane diisocyanate (MDI), with some immunologic observations.
Medical history, clinical examinations, and analyses of immunologic parameters and the 4,4'-MDI-related amine 4,4'-diaminodiphenylmethane (MDA) in hydrolyzed serum and urine were used.
The patient, a mechanic whose medical history suggested repeated attacks of a work-related pulmonary or systemic disease, was examined because of acute respiratory disorder, rhinoconjunctivitis, and a late systemic reaction after exposure to polyurethane pyrolysis products, including 4,4'-MDI (air level 15 mug m-3).
