Thirty-seven workers exposed to formaldehyde (F) were evaluated to determine whether any of their respiratory or ocular symptoms were mediated by an immunologic response to F. Because there has never been a case of defined immunologically mediated respiratory or ocular disease as a result of exposure to gaseous F, we used clinical and immunologic criteria developed for immunologic respiratory diseases that result from inhalational exposure to trimellitic anhydride.
