This review explores the associations between workplace exposures and steatosis, increased liver microsomal activity, cholestatic liver injury, portal fibrosis and hepatic sclerosis, granulomatous liver disease, porphyria cutanea tarda, peptic ulcer disease, pancreatitis, gastroenteritis, celiac disease, and pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis.
