Abstract Case study of mixed bronchial and alveolar disease in a worker exposed to isocyanate, with considerations on the aetio-pathogenic mechanisms of poisoning by this substance. Results of analysis of clinical signs and tests showed bronchial reactions due to a twofold mechanism (irritant and immunological), with parieto-alveolar reactions due to type-III hypersensitivity reaction.
