Abstract

Silicosis, a slowly progressing chronic disease, is rare in lung transplantation patients. Herein, we report a case of single lung transplantation in a 35-year-old man for acute and accelerated silicosis, without a history of inhalation of silicium. A pathology examination of the explanted lung revealed that aspiration of a scouring powder was the cause of lung silicosis. Aspirationinduced lung silicosis is rare.
