The association between hematolymphopoietic cancers and occupational exposures to pesticides is being examined in a population based case-control study. 228 cases diagnose aged 20-74 years and 140 controls between 1/1/1990-31/12/1993 were eligible for the study in the west Liguria area. 163 cases and 109 controls were interviewed regarding use of pesticides and other possible risk factors and confounding variables. Expert agronomists assessed the job exposure to pesticides using the informations from questionnaires and the job-matrices.
