Abstract
Pulmonary asbestosis is defined as bilateral diffuse interstitial fibrosis of the lungs caused by exposure to asbestos. Many occupations are at risk for asbestos exposure, particularly in the mining, milling, manufacturing, construction, shipbuilding, and automotive industries. Therefore, the prevalence of asbestosis should be fairly widespread. The diagnosis of asbestosis can be made on either clinical or pathological grounds. We recently encountered one case of asbestosis which was confirmed histologically. On HRCT, there was ground-glass opacity with irregular linear shadows, subpleural curvilinear lines and parenchymal bands. Neither plaque nor calcification were noted. The histologic findings observed on open-lung biopsy specimen were well in accord with those in HRCT. Many asbestos-coated bodies were present along with black dust.
