Ignored occupational risks of asbestos mesotheliomas

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Nine cases of asbestos mesothelioma following usually ignored asbestos exposure were reported. In these cases the asbestos exposure has been traced following a thorough medical inquiry within the hospital. Such a type of inquiry would reduce the number of mesotheliomas due to unknown causes or considered spontaneous. The role of the hospitals as a primary source of epidemiological information is stressed.
