[en] Mesothelioma is a rare tumour, particularly aggressive, whose incidence increases because of the massive use of asbestos during the last century. Asbestos remains indeed the principal etiologic agent of this cancer. In the event of mesothelioma it is advisable to seek an exposure, even of short duration, often which dates back to several decades. In certain circumstances compensation can be obtained at the Occupational Diseases Found. The renewed interest with regard to this tumour is supported by the improvement of mesothelioma management, the new imaging techniques, the new treatments and the broad diffusion of information related to the risk of developing this tumour following asbestos inhalation.
