Abstract
A case of mercurialism in a shoe factory employee leads to a comprehensive search for mercury (7439976) vapor or source of mercury in all factory operations, but to no avail. Blood and urine analysis confirms poisoning by mercury. The environmental survey confirms that the source of mercury is not the shoe factory but probably a deep well in the worker's home.
