Lösungsmittelexposition bei Sklerodermie: disseminierte zirkumskripte Sklerodermie (Morphea) bei einem Perchlorethylen-exponierten Lackierer


Hinnen, Urs; Schmid-Grendelmeier, P; Müller, E; Elsner, P (1995). Lösungsmittelexposition bei Sklerodermie: disseminierte zirkumskripte Sklerodermie (Morphea) bei einem Perchlorethylen-exponierten Lackierer. Swiss Medical Weekly, 125(50):2433-2437.

Abstract

We report on a 45-year-old painter who developed morphea-like scleroderma. He had been exposed to perchlorethylene for one year while operating a metal degreaser; the perchlorethylene concentration in the workplace ranged between 10 and 25 ppm. Whereas systemic scleroderma has frequently been attributed to solvent exposure in the past, this is only the third description of a morphea-like scleroderma suspected to be related to occupational contact with organic solvents.
