Acute allergic reaction after composite pollen ingestion.
This study indicates that atopic individuals may experience anaphylaxis from ingestion of antigens in certain food stuffs that cross-react with pollens to which they are sensitive. Expand
Occupational rhinitis and asthma due to EDTA-containing detergents or disinfectants.
This case series is the first report of EDTA-related respiratory disease, documented by a specific test, and a ban of spray preparations would be sufficient to prevent respiratory disease induced by EDTA inhalation, regardless of its mechanism. Expand
Clinical and socio‐professional fate of isocyanate‐induced asthma
Quality of the new work site seems to play a role in the evolution of isocyanate‐induced asthma, with asymptomatic patients appeared to be younger and to have shorter durations of total and symptomatic exposures, while symptomatic patients were more reactive to acetylcholine at diagnosis. Expand
Persistent asthma after inhalation of a mixture of sodium hypochlorite and hydrochloric acid.
A case of asthma is reported, persisting 2 years after the inhalation of a mixture of sodium hypochlorite and hydrochloric acid, with uncommon abnormalities supporting irritation for cause of this nonimmunologic asthma. Expand
Is the incidence of aliphatic amine-induced occupational rhinitis and asthma underestimated?
The frequency of amine-induced occupational rhinitis (OR) or asthma (OA) may be underestimated, particularly when cleaning products are incriminated. Expand
Persistent asthma after accidental exposure to ethylene oxide.
He worked as a repairer in a railway station and had never been occupationally exposed to any chemicals until he experienced a leak of ethylene oxide from a wagon situated about 18 m from him when heExpand
[An underestimated prevalence: the association food allergy-occupational asthma].
Two cases of asthma induced by isocyanates and complicated by food allergy to cruciferae (plants of the mustard family) are reported. Cross-allergy is suggested as a pathophysiological mechanism ofExpand
Tetrahydrofuran poisoning after occupational exposure.

[The initiating role of several respiratory and skin contaminants in food allergies].
The authors present data which suggest that mustard hypersensitivity can result from Isocyanates induced occupational asthma. Isothiocyanates present in mustard spice is probably responsible for thisExpand
[International medico-legal aspects of occupational asthma].
The authors explain the different types of legislation, according to dissimilar systems, which enable the Social Security or private services to take charge of the care required for occupationallyExpand
