The presence of spores of P. frequentans in the air of a Portuguese cork factory was associated with precipitins to this sp. in the sera of 38% of 592 workers and a high incidence of radiological and functional changes in their lungs. Patients with suberosis gave positive reactions to skin tests and aerosol provocation with the appropriate antigen. The air of the factory buildings contained up to 54 X 106 P. frequentans spores/m3 with the highest concs. in the cork store. The predominant fungi present in over 75% of the air samples included P. frequentans, P. granulatum, Aphanocladium album, Monilia [Neurospora] sitophila and Mucor plumbeus.
