Alveolitis as a result of dust chlorine exposure
Hypersensitivity pneumonia of the lung, also called "extrinsic allergic alveolitis" or "hypersensitivity pneumonitis", is a condition in which the lung tissue becomes inflamed for reasons other than microbial causes. There may be many different reasons. Among the most common reasons were bird feeding, agricultural works and air conditioners. There are acute, subacute or chronic (slowly progressing) forms. Acute and subacute forms may recur, while the chronic form progresses and causes permanent and irreversible damage such as fibrosis and emphysema. Bird proteins, mammalian proteins, fungi, bacterial proteins and small molecular weight chemicals are generally blamed for the formation of the disease. Sometimes the causative agent may not be identified. In this case, we aimed to present a patient who applied to our clinic due to complaints of sudden respiratory distress, rapid fatigue and cough as a result of dust chlorine exposure, and was diagnosed with alveolitis, hospitalized and followed up.
