This slender book tackles two fascinating aspects of a group of "new diseases" of the lungs: disorders related to pulmonary hypersensitivity to inhaled organic dusts. The major sections are devoted to Aspergillus fumigatus (bronchopulmonary aspergillus hypersensitivity) and farmer's lung disease (moldy hay—perhaps Micropolyspora faeni hypersensitivity) causing "extrinsic allergic alveolitis."Cited by: Book: Hypersensitivity diseases of the lungs due to fungi and organic dusts.

Hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP) and organic dust toxic syndrome (ODTS) were discussed and compared in this review.

Augustin. Hypersensitivity pneumonitis usually occurs in people who work in places where there are high levels of organic dusts, fungus, or molds. Long-term exposure can lead to lung inflammation and acute lung disease.

Over time, the acute condition turns into long-lasting (chronic) lung disease. definition of organic dusts: Organic dusts can be defined as dusts of plant (vegetable), animal and microbial origin. There are various sources of hazardous exposure to organic dust in the occupational setting (Table 1).

Hypersensitivity pneumonitis is a disease of the lungs in which your lungs become inflamed as an allergic reaction to inhaled dust, fungus, molds, or chemicals. Hypersensitivity pneumonitis is caused by an allergy to certain dusts (allergens) that you inhale.

This allergy causes inflammation in your lungs. If detected early, and you avoid the. Hypersensitivity pneumonitis is inflammation of the lungs due to breathing in a foreign substance, usually certain types of dust, fungus, or molds.

Causes of hypersensitivity pneumonitis. Hypersensitivity pneumonitis usually occurs in people who work in places where there are high levels of organic dusts, fungus, or molds. Farmer’s lung may be an industrial lung disease due to hypersensitivity to an antigen arising from the dust of moldy forage.
