We report increased proportional mortality from cryptogenic flbrosing alveolitis in the workforce of a major UK engineering company. Measures of metal exposure from unbiased historical occupational records showed that among employees who have worked with metal, the risk of death from or with cryptogenic fibrosing alveolitis increased in relation to the duration of metal-working.
