To reveal the presence of dust-borne pathology and manganese intoxication among those working in the manganese mines, specialists from the Institute conducted a medical examination of apprentice workers. Each ofthem was examined in detail by the therapists, neuropathologists and otolaryngologists. Clinical analysis of the blood was made, the presence of manganese in the biological substrates (blood, feces and urine) was determined and functional tests were carried out at rest and after measured work (pulse, its recovery, respiration rate, holding the breath, arterial pressure). One hundred seventy men were examined in all, with 144 of them underground workers.
