Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Oral pigmentations were studied in 88 patients with Yusho in 1980. The following results were obtained. The oral pigmentations gradually decreased year by year. Especially, the pigmentation in the lip was remarkably decreased. There were some relations between the degree of pigmentation in the gingiva and the chromascan data. In the present study we could not elucidate a clear relation between the chromascan data and the blood PCB levels.
