Beryllium, diagnostic guideline

This Guideline provides the clinical diagnostic criteria for beryllium sensitization and chronic beryllium disease (CBD; old term = berylliosis), based on the latest available medical literature and consultation with leading experts in the field. This Guideline does not address exposure prevention, workplace safety, or treatment. In addition, this Guideline is not intended to supplant all adjudicative decisions in cases that meet the case definition and which are crucial to the administration of the Washington workers’ compensation system.
