It has been estimated that over 10 million workers in the United States are exposed to metalworking fluids (MWF) either by inhalation or through the skin. We have applied an usused semisynthetic MWF to the dorsal skin of unshaven B6C3F1 mice of both sexes twice a week for six weeks. Body weights, the morphological changes seen in the skin and the draining lymph nodes, and their possible health implications for workers' health will be presented.
