||This article reports on a 47-year-old man suffering from progressive dyspnoea, cough and sputum due to an exogenous allergic alveolitis. The subject was found to show a type-III-sensitization to Aspergillus fumigatus, epithelium and proteins from animals found in stables, indicating an occupational hypersensitivity pneumonitis in this blacksmith. Further, combustion products and nanoparticles emitted while the horse is being shod induce recurrent sub-acute micro-inhalation injuries. On the basis of these findings, this disease was reported to the industrial injuries insurance as an occupational disease for consideration of legal consequences. Furthermore, referral to a lung specialist was recommended.
