Sarcoidosis in a dental
surgeon: a case report
Although the causes of sarcoidosis
are still unknown, past and current studies have provided evidence that this
disease may be associated with occupational exposure to specific environmental
agents. We describe a case of sarcoidosis in a dental surgeon with long
exposure to inorganic dusts. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first
report of this kind in the literature.
At the beginning of 2000, a
52-year-old Caucasian man, who worked as a dental surgeon, presented with
shortness of breath during exercise, cough and retrosternal pain. After
diagnosis of sarcoidosis, a scanning electronic microscopy with X-ray
microanalysis of biopsy specimens was used in order to determine whether the
disease could be traced to an occupational environmental agent. Results showed
the presence of inorganic dust particles within sarcoidotic granulomas, and
demonstrated that the material detected was identical to that found in a powder
used by our patient for several years.
Although these results cannot be
considered as definitive proof, they do however provide strong evidence that
this disease may be associated with material used by dental surgeons.
