This association was established in epidemiological studies of woodworkers, cabinet and furniture makers working in high concentrations of dust present in workplaces in the past. For example, seventy percent of patients with sinonasal adenocarcinoma reported in Denmark between 1965 and 1974 had worked for many years in wood-working jobs.
