X, an arboriculture worker, who contracted bladder cancer as a result of his exposure to pesticides. The Mutualité Sociale Agricole du Limousin had refused to recognize the occupational origin of this pathology, relying on the opinion of the Regional Committee for the Recognition of Occupational Diseases (CRRMP) of Limoges. As the amicable settlement commission had the same opinion, Mr. X referred the matter to the Social Security Tribunal (TASS) of Corrèze, which, by judgment of June 26, 2014, referred the matter to a second CRRMP. As the second CRRMP also rejected the claim for lack of a direct link, the TASS, by a judgment of February 11, 2015, dismissed Mr X's claim. He then appealed. The Limoges Court of Appeal recognized that Mr. X had suffered from cancer of the urinary tract (of which the bladder is a part) and had used various phytosanitary substances during his professional activity, some of which contain organic arsenic compounds. It considered that the link between the professional activity and the pathology noted was sufficiently close for the request for recognition of an occupational disease to be granted.
