Spectrum of histopathologic features of indium lung disease (hematoxylin and eosin stains). A, Case B: intraalveolar exudate characteristic of alveolar proteinosis, with occasional cholesterol clefts (magnification × 200). B, Case D: innumerable cholesterol clefts (magnification × 200). C, Case G: intraalveolar exudate characteristic of alveolar proteinosis, cholesterol clefts, and fibrosis (magnification × 100). D, Case H: cholesterol clefts, associated multinucleated giant cells, interstitial fibrosis, and brown particles composed predominantly of indium (magnification × 200).

Case C: CT scans of the chest showing progression of disease over 3 years. A, In November 2007 at age 28 years, 4 months after leaving employment. The predominant findings are ground-glass opacities and interlobular septal thickening that in some areas give the appearance of crazy paving. B, In February 2009 at age 29 years, 1.5 years after leaving employment and 10 months after whole-lung lavage. Fibrosis is now apparent. C, In August 2010 at age 31 years, 3 years after leaving employment. Fibrosis has markedly increased. Prominent air spaces anteriorly may be a precursor to the emphysema seen in other cases.

Figure 1. From: Indium Lung Disease.

Case A: CT scans of the chest showing progression of disease over 5 years. A, In January 2001 at age 51 years, 3.5 months after leaving employment. In this area of the lung, the predominant finding is mild interlobular septal thickening. B, In July 2001 at age 51 years, 10 months after leaving employment. Increased septal thickening and the development of ground-glass opacities are seen. C, In February 2002 at age 52 years, 1.5 years after leaving employment and 6 months after whole-lung lavage. Fibrotic changes are now apparent, including subpleural septal thickening and traction bronchiectasis. D, In June 2005 at age 55 years, nearly 5 years after leaving employment. Early honeycombing changes are apparent posteriorly. E, In July 2006 at age 56 years, nearly 6 years after leaving employment. Further increases in septal thickening, traction bronchiectasis, and subpleural fibrosis have occurred.
