Abstract
From 1977 to 1981, three cases of beryllium disease (berylliosis) among workers in a large spacecraft-manufacturing plant in California, were reported to the Beryllium Case Registry (BCR) of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). All three patients were machinists who had worked with beryllium metal from the late 1950s to the mid-1970s, fabricating special parts for missile guidance systems.
