Abstract

We review a series of 11 silicotic coal miners demonstrating a progressive renal failure with a syndrome of rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis. Renal biopsies reveal crescentic glomerulonephritides associated three times with angeitis. These cases confirm that silica induced glomerulonephritides can be an occupational hazard and warrant further clinical and epidemiological research.
