Lung diseases caused by organic dusts in the farm environment.


Organic dusts present in the farm environment may cause a series of lung cell reactions involving inflammation and immune responses. Clinical diseases related to this exposure and based on the inflammation may be divided into acute and chronic inflammation. These can be accompanied by airway hypersensitivity. Individual clinical cases often present atypical or mixed symptoms that must be recognized as a work-related disease.
