dc.description.abstractMalignant mesothelioma is a rare tumour strongly associated with asbestos exposure. It is a notifiable disease in Singapore - voluntarily to the Cancer Registry since 1968 and statutorily under the Factories Act, 1973. Singapore's industrial exposure to asbestos started in the late 1940s with the establishment of a factory engaged in manufacturing asbestos cement products. Asbestos is now being used in about 60 establishments. This report presents an epidemiological and occupational profile of the few cases of malignant mesothelioma confirmed in Singapore.
