Título Pulmonary fibrosis in a patient with exposure to glass wool fibers
Información bibliográfica Dec. 2006, Vol.49, No.12, p.1066-1069. Illus. 11 ref.
Resumen Glass wool or vitreous fibres are non-crystalline inorganic substances made primarily from rock, slag, glass or other processed minerals. They belong to the man-made mineral fibres group and their respiratory effects are well described. In the absence of firm evidence until now that exposure to these fibres is associated with lung fibrosis, pleural lesions or non-specific respiratory diseases in humans, this case description of interstitial fibrosis, which implies a direct association between long-term exposure to glass wool and the clinical outcome, is of particular interest.
