Brief introduction of occupational scleroderma

This disease refers to acroscleroderma-like changes caused by long-term repeated exposure to chemicals such as vinyl chloride and its polymers. Some patients may be accompanied by acrosteolysis at the same time, which is also called acroosteolysis. It is reported that this disease mainly occurs in PVC workers who clean the solidified PVC in the reaction pot with their bare hands, so it is also called vinyl chloride disease, and the prevalence rate is 1% ~ 6%. The mechanism is still unknown. According to Dinman et al. (1971), this disease is systemic rather than local.
