• Two hundred fifty individuals who filed claims for workers' disability compensation benefits for work-related dermatoses were evaluated in the private-practice setting of the author. Preset standard guidelines were used to assess the validity of work relevancy for each claimant. The findings in this retrospective study that included workers from 14 different industrial milieus revealed that 127 of 250 examinees had skin findings that were consistent with the respective workplace exposure.
