  • Pulmonary fibrosis and exposure to steel welding fume. [Review]
  • OMOccup Med (Lond) 2015; 65(9):706-12
  • Cosgrove MP
  • CONCLUSIONS: Steel welding fume may cause an occupational respiratory bronchiolitis which may develop into de squamative interstitial pneumonia with ongoing exposure. This concept may explain the difficulties in interpreting the wider literature on welding fume and lung function at lower exposures and may also explain the increased risk of lung cancer in welders.

  • [Interstitial pulmonary siderofibrosis: requirements for acceptance as new occupational disease]. [Case Reports]
  • PPneumologie 2003; 57(1):9-14
  • Buerke U, Schneider J, … Woitowitz HJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: Regarding the actual knowledge about the pathomechanisms of ultrafine particles on lung tissue, the evidence from animal experiments, the histological and electron microscopical results, our own clinical examinations of welders and some epidemiological evidence, we assume a causal relationship of interstitial pulmonary siderofibrosis in welders with long-standing exposure to high concentrations of welding fumes under poor working conditions.
