The first major reports of industrial hazards and diseases were made about 40 years ago. It was soon realized that the field would become a large one and that unusual causes and lesions necessarily would be discovered. Beryllium poisoning is one of the newer occupational diseases.

There is much to suggest that it is of systemic involvement rather than a source productive of only dermal and pulmonary lesions. It is a condition which should stimulate the internist to further coöperation with medicine in industry.
