nickel toxicity

nickel toxicity

A condition caused by nickel excess, which may be due to nickel-based jewelry (resulting in contact dermatitis) or occupational exposure (resulting in liver necrosis and pulmonary congestion); long-term nickel exposure increases the risk for nasopharygeal and lung cancer.
