Lycoperdonosis.

Abstract

Inhalation of large quantities of spores from the puffball (lycoperdon), which has been widely used in folk medicine, can cause a respiratory disease with symptoms of pneumonia and widespread densities in the lungs. The course is rather protracted, but the final outcome seems good. Steroids probably shorten the disease. A typical case is reported.
