Título Vineyard sprayer's lung - Clinical aspects.
Información bibliográfica Nov. 1974, Vol.110, No.5, p.545-555. Illus. 10 ref.
Resumen All known cases of vineyard sprayer's lung, first described in 1969, have been caused by the inhalation of "Bordeaux mixture", a pesticide containing copper sulfate. A review of the pathological features of the disease is followed by an account of 15 cases diagnosed at the Lisbon University Hospital. These cases are analysed from the clinical, radiographic and laboratory points of view in an attempt to define the various clinicopathological forms of the disease and methods of diagnosis. The high incidence of lung cancer found in those with vineyard sprayer's lung may be related to the copper found in their lesions.
