Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Upper limb musculoskeletal complaints are common among certain health professionals. We report two cases, both of involving technicians working in a diagnostic tuberculosis laboratory in Hong Kong. A detailed work process evaluation suggested that the need to repeatedly open and close small bottles, as well as to work for prolonged periods of time in confined areas, could be related to the workers' clinical presentation. The cases are also compatible with the diagnosis of repetitive strain injury (RSI) of the upper limb, but this term is not commonly used nowadays because of various definitional issues. A review of the various diagnostic issues in RSI is presented.
