Scope note: Enfermedad difusa del parénquima pulmonar causada por inhalación de polvo y por la reacción tisular a su presencia. En general, esta materia particulada o vaporizada, orgánica o inorgánica es inhalada por los trabajadores en su entorno laboral y conduce a varias formas de neumoconiosis (ASBESTOSIS, BISINOSIS y otras). De forma análoga, la contaminación atmosférica también tiene efectos nocivos sobre la población general.

Scope note: A diffuse parenchymal lung disease caused by inhalation of dust and by tissue reaction to their presence. These inorganic, organic, particulate, or vaporized matters usually are inhaled by workers in their occupational environment, leading to the various forms (ASBESTOSIS; BYSSINOSIS; and others). Similar air pollution can also have deleterious effects on the general population.
