In twenty-two houses in Sendai, where occupants were suspected of suffering from so-called, "Sick House Syndrome", indoor air qualities (IAQ) were investigated. The investigation included measurements for formaldehyde and volatile organic compounds (VOC) concentrations, questionnaires regarding subjective symptoms, and a medical test for MCS by doctors. IAQ in some houses exceeded the guidelines set by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare of Japan. The relationship between the measurement results of indoor chemical substance concentrations and the subjective symptoms determined by the questionnaire suggested that the symptoms were more serious in houses having higher concentrations. On the other hand, however, there were some occupants documented to have very strong symptoms in low concentration houses.
