Pleural plaques represent the most frequently encountered non-malignant asbestos related condition seen in clinical practice. However, their aetiology is far from clear and diagnosis and differential diagnosis are often difficult. This publication originates from one of the only international meetings held on the subject in many years. Among the aspects thoroughly discussed, it examines the aetiology and pathogenesis of pleural plaques, the clinical pathology and histology, and the incidence of epidemiology of pleural plaques comparing exposed workers with the general population. It also highlights the current interest in pleural plaques which stems from the medico-legal aspects of the condition. This unique source of information will be regularly consulted by those involved in the study of 'fibre toxicology'.
