Título Fatal pulmonary intra-alveolar fibrosis after paraquat ingestion.
Información bibliográfica 8 Aug. 1974, Vol.291, No.6, p.290-292. Illus. 16 ref.
Resumen A report of a fatal case of paraquat poisoning with some unusual histological features. The clinical course was of renal toxicity followed by progressive respiratory failure. Extensive intra-alveolar avascular fibrosis was found at autopsy in all lung sections examined, with no interstitial fibrosis, indicating that the original damage was not strong enough to injure the more deeply situated capillary endothelium and basal membrance. A list of paraquat-containing herbicides is given.
