    Occupational asthma caused by latex has been reported in health care workers and workers in glove manufacturing plants.

    Objective 

    We report occupational asthma from latex in a newly identified occupational setting, a latex doll manufacturing plant.

    We evaluated an index case of asthma associated with work in a latex doll manufacturing plant by performing a workplace challenge and evaluating the work environment.

    We then performed an occupational survey and skin testing of 22 workers in the doll manufacturing plant.
