Pulmonary fibrosis secondary
to siderosis causing symptomatic respiratory disease: a case report
Pulmonary siderosis secondary to
the inhalation of iron compounds is a rare condition which, despite striking
radiological and histopathological features, has not traditionally been
associated with symptoms or functional impairment. Although not the first of
its kind, we present an unusual case of pulmonary siderosis with symptomatic
respiratory disease, most likely secondary to associated fibrosis.
A 66-year-old Caucasian man was
referred to the outpatient clinic with a 2-year history of exertional
breathlessness. He had worked as an engineer for 20 years where he did a
significant amount of welding but always wore a face shield. Clinical,
radiological and histological features were consistent with a diagnosis of
pulmonary siderosis, with associated fibrosis, most likely related to his
occupational welding history.
Our report illustrates that
symptomatic respiratory disease due to mild peribronchiolar fibrosis can occur
with pulmonary siderosis despite wearing a mask. Furthermore, it reinforces the
need for all clinicians to compile a detailed occupational history in
individuals presenting with breathlessness.
