Abstract

Styrene is an aromatic compound widely used in the production of plastic polymers and rubbers. Studies of the effect of styrene on the respiratory tract are scarce. We describe three cases of occupational asthma and one case of occupational rhinitis due to styrene, which have been recently observed in our center. There is evidence that styrene can be a primary cause of occupational asthma and rhinitis. The mechanisms of action are unknown. Our findings suggest the need for preventive strategies for styrene exposed workers.
