Silicosis is a common occupational disease worldwide. It is caused by the inhalation of crystalline silicon dioxide, i.e. silica. Quartz is a common form of silica and occurs in sandstone and granite. Occupational exposure can occur e.g. in mining, quarrying and sandblasting. The inhaled silica triggers an inflammatory response when phagocytosed which eventually causes fibrosis. We present a 45-year-old male Danish sand-blaster who developed silicosis, and due to rapid decline in lung function received a lung transplant with an excellent result.

Translated title of the contributionWorking as a sandblaster can cause silicosis.
