Silica-associated systemic sclerosis occurring after an occupational exposure to arc welding.

Abstract Crystalline silica-associated systemic sclerosis can occur in people operating arc welding. Diffuse scleroderma was diagnosed in a 57-year old plumber-welder suffering from inflammatory polyarthralgias, Raynaud's phenomenon, sclerodactyly, diffuse cutaneous scleroderma, telangiectasias, esophageal damage, pulmonary arterial hypertension and pulmonary fibrosis associated with the presence of anti-nucleosome antibodies. During his professional activity the patient was frequently exposed to high atmospheric concentrations of crystalline silica generated by arc-welding. The diagnosis of Erasmus syndrome associated with systemic sclerosis and pulmonary silicosis was retained. A report of work-related illness (table 17 in Tunisia) was made.
