The Authors report a particular case of occupational asthma observed in a greenhouse worker. They describe the diagnostic procedure followed after identification on the cultivated plants of colonies of aspergillus niger, a fungus identified as an etiologic agent of the allergic disease. The peculiarity of the causative agent is stressed and it is recommended that environmental and health prevention measures be improved for this poorly protected class of workers.
