목적: 영상음향장비 제조업체의 오류수정 공정에서 2,5-헥산디온의 사용후에 발생한 피부착색의 3례보고. 방법: 지역 직업성질환 감시체계를 통해 보고된 피부착색 3례에 대해 병력조사 및 작업환경조사, 문헌고찰을 하였다. 결과: 2,5-헥산디온을 함윤한 신물질의 사용 후부터 손바닥의 오렌지-브라운 착색이 발생하였고, 사용중단후 호전되었다. 병력조사와 작업환경조사를 통해 피부착색을 일으킬만한 다른 원인은 배제되었다. 결론: 3례 모두 2,5-헥산디온에 의한 피부착색으로 판단되었다.


Objective: To report on the skin discoloration experienced by three workers handling 2,5-hexanedione Methods: Three workers, who showed orange-brown discoloration of the palms during observation under the Kumi occupational disease surveillance system, had their history evaluated and underwent physical examination. A workplace survey was performed by an occupational physician and an industrial hygienist. Results: The three workers were determined to have been experiencing skin discoloration since the introduction of a new cleaning solvent. The new solvent contained 2,5-hexanedione, which is reported in the literature to be possibly capable of causing orange-brown discoloration of the skin. After discontinuation of solvent use, the workers recovered within a week. Conclusion: These cases demonstrate that 2,5-hexanedione can produce skin pigmentation.
