Occupational exposure and systemic sclerosis. Literature review and result of a self-reported questionnaire.

Occupational exposure (labour and leisure) must be searched for when faced with a scleroderma patient for two reasons: the possible declaration of an occupational disease and a better knowledge on toxics involved in scleroderma. Granel B (PubMed) Rev Med Interne. 2008 Nov;29(11):891-900. (Also see: Causes of Scleroderma: Silica and Solvents)
