Mercury levels in blood and urine and several nerve conduction velocities (CV) were measured in two groups of workers exposed to mercury (Hg) and in a reference group. Furthermore neuropsychiatric examination and psychological tests were performed. There was a significant mild degree of slowing of sensory CV, but no dose-effect relationship was evaluated on a group basis. The individual assessment showed in some cases hints of abnormal CV caused by mercury exposure. Significant correlations… CONTINUE READING
