  • Pulmonary fibrosis and exposure to steel welding fume. [Review]
    Occup Med (Lond) 2015; 65(9):706-12Cosgrove 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.
  • Combined pulmonary fibrosis and emphysema in a welder. [Case Reports]
    Monaldi Arch Chest Dis 2012; 77(1):26-8Roshan R, Guptal M, … Chhabra SK
  • Combined pulmonary fibrosis and emphysema (CPFE) syndrome is an uncommon entity characterised by emphysema of the upper lobes and diffuse fibrosis of the lower lobes and carries a bad prognosis with the onset of pulmonary hypertension. Lung involvement due to exposures suffered by welders is generally considered benign though, rarely, a diffuse interstitial fibrotic disease has been reported. CPF…
  • [Interstitial pulmonary siderofibrosis: requirements for acceptance as new occupational disease]. [Case Reports]
    Pneumologie 2003; 57(1):9-14Buerke 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.
  • [Sidero-fibrosis of the lungs after decades of arc welding]. [Case Reports]
    Pneumologie 1997; 51(6):545-9Steurich F, Feyerabend R
  • The case of a patient is described who suffered from pulmonary siderofibrosis, histologically confirmed as a long-term cause of arc welding for several decades. In spite of this, there was no severe alteration of lung function. Pulmonary siderosis in welders was considered to be a benign pneumoconiosis. However, in recent years it has been noticed that siderosis is accompanied by disorders of pul…
  • [The origin of bronchial carcinoma in siderofibrosis]. [Case Reports]
    Z Erkr Atmungsorgane 1988; 171(1):82-4Wiemann B, Bergmann L
  • Investigations of diseases due to professional exposure, especially the development of malignant tumors, are of increasing interest. In the present case the development of a bronchogenic carcinoma on the base of sidero-fibrosis in a 46-year-old man (E-welder) is described. Several aspects of the problem are discussed.
