Fettler's disease with smoke inhalation: Particles within the lung

Abstract

In August 1985, a 72-year-old man died in the Manchester air disaster. Transmission electron microscopy of his lung tissue revealed not only inhaled smoke particles, but a large population of distinctive particles with different characteristics. These contain silicon and iron, as well as carbon and oxygen, and are thought to be related to his occupation as a fettler and to the extensive fibrosis seen on routine histology.
