Work-related asthma in an orthopaedic surgeon
An orthopaedic surgeon with no history of lung disease developed cough and dyspnoea. The patient was diagnosed with asthma by spirometry and bronchial provocation test with methacholine. A clear correlation between symptoms and work was established meriting a referral to a centre for occupational health. The patient was diagnosed with work-related disease, which was recognized by the industrial injury board. The cause was methyl methacrylate, a known airway irritant, which is an important component of bone cement. Previously, no cases of work-related asthma in orthopaedic surgeons have been reported.
