Bauxite Fibrosis

Bauxite Fibrosis (of Lung)


Presentation

  • […] disease , is a progressive form of pneumoconiosis usually caused by occupational exposure to bauxite fumes which contain aluminium and silica particulates. [1] It is typically seen in workers involved in the smelting of bauxite to produce corundum . [2] Presentation[enhancedwiki.territorioscuola.it]

  • Talcosis can also arise from the injection of drugs intended for oral administration, as talc is present in many tablets and capsules that are used intravenously, such as benzodiazepines, dextroamphetamine, and prescription opioids.[howlingpixel.com]
  • In humans these structures include part of the esophagus, trachea and parathyroid glands, lymph nodes, major blood vessels present include the carotid arteries and the jugular veins.[wikivisually.com]
  • Presentation Initially, the disease appears as alveolitis, and then progresses to emphysema.[en.academic.ru]
