The case history is described of a worker who presented with a history suggestive of reactive airways dysfunction syndrome which occurred after an acute high level inhalation of diphenylmethane diisocyanate. Further exposure at work, at a time when concentrations of isocyanates were no longer 'irritant', suggested occupational asthma; this diagnosis was confirmed by a specific inhalation challenge test.
