Skin Eruptions of Workers in a Uranium-Processing Plant

Skin Eruptions of Workers in a Uranium-Processing Plant Abstract During the past two and one-half years a group of workers in a uranium processing plant have been observed with skin eruptions. The plant is operated by the National Lead Company of Ohio, near Cincinnati. This study does not cover all the dermatological cases seen in the plant, and it is not our intention to indicate the incidence of such problems arising there. However, because of the interest in the work being done at the plant, it was felt that some summary of the type of skin lesions seen among these workers would be of interest. This was particularly true because no such study had previously been recorded in the literature available to us. Furthermore, it has recently become possible to discuss fairly freely the chemical processes going on in this plant.

Abstract

Abstract During the past two and one-half years a group of workers in a uranium processing plant have been observed with skin eruptions. The plant is operated by the National Lead Company of Ohio, near Cincinnati. This study does not cover all the dermatological cases seen in the plant, and it is not our intention to indicate the incidence of such problems arising there. However, because of the interest in the work being done at the plant, it was felt that some summary of the type of skin lesions seen among these workers would be of interest. This was particularly true because no such study had previously been recorded in the literature available to us. Furthermore, it has recently become possible to discuss fairly freely the chemical processes going on in this plant. It proc esses uranium ore, starting with crude material that very much resembles dirt References 1. Taylor, L. S.: Health Physics , New York, Pergamon Press, Inc., 1958, Vol. 1, Pp. 62-70, 2.
