Plasma and urine mercury values in relation to hand tremor and proteinuria in workers exposed to mercury vapor



Plasma and urine mercury values in relation to hand tremor and proteinuria in workers exposed to mercury vapor



Industrial Health 15(1-2): 77-86



Urine and plasma Hg values in relation to hand tremor and proteinuria were studied for workers in 3 workshops with different types of Hg exposure. Proteinuria was transiently observed in workers of shorter length of Hg exposure, but the ephemerality of hand tremor was partial, i.e., different by types of exposure, and was observed in workers of longer length of exposure. No good correlations were observed between urine or plasma Hg values and these 2 symptoms. Relations of urine to plasma Hg values differed by the type of exposure and the uniformity in workers' composition in duration of exposure. The minimum urine or plasma Hg value and its variation due to the type of exposure were discussed at appearance or persistence of hand tremor and proteinuria.
