Background

Occupational lung diseases refer to a group of disorders that result from accumulation of inhaled dust particles and chemicals affecting airways, lung parenchyma or pleura. Usually, there is a long latency period between exposure and development of disease.

 

Diagnosis of a single agent causing disease may be challenging because a single agent may produce multiple manifestations and a single disease may be produced by more than one agent. For example, asbestosis may manifest as pleural plaques, benign pleural effusion, diffuse pleural thickening, round atelectasis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma; and hypersensitivity pneumonitis may be caused by several agents.
