Abstract: We report a case of bronchial asthma due to ethylene diamine in a chemical worker. The typical relationship with work exposure was elicited from the occupational history and serial peak flow measurements. A late dual asthmatic reaction was seen in bronchial provocation test with ethylene diamine. Bronchial hyper-responsiveness to isopropyly alcohol and histamine was observed and was likely to be the result rather than a predisposing factor for the development of occupational asthma. Amines are a powerful group of small molecular weight asthmatogens that are commonly used in various types of industries locally and should be recognised in the clinical evaluation of workers with asthma.
