Título Different course of silicosis in four brothers of one family
Información bibliográfica 2009, Vol.22, No.1, p.51-57. Illus. 32 ref.
Resumen Silicosis remains a common occupational respiratory disease. Four cases of silicosis which developed after a relatively short occupational exposure to respirable silica among the members of one family are described. Four young Lithuanian brothers worked illegally abroad in mining in one of European countries. All of them were employed together in the same working conditions but for different work durations. One of the brothers died due to the acute form of the disease (lipoproteinosis). Two of the brothers suffered from simple nodular silicosis, and the fourth brother developed very early nodular silicosis and small airway dust disease. A one year follow-up revealed moderate/severe worsening of the disease in all surviving brothers.
