Clinical Information
  • A chronic lung disorder characterized by deposition of coal dust in the lung parenchyma leading to the formation of black nodules and emphysema. It occurs in coal miners.
  • A diffuse parenchymal lung disease caused by accumulation of inhaled carbon or coal dust. The disease can progress from asymptomatic anthracosis to massive lung fibrosis. This lung lesion usually occurs in coal miners, but can be seen in urban dwellers and tobacco smokers.
  • A form of pneumoconiosis caused by inhalation of dust that contains both carbon and crystalline silicon dioxide. These foreign matters induce fibrous nodule formation in the lung.
