There are some reports regarding the possibility of developing granulomatous lung disease after MMVF exposure.
To determine the possible association of MMVF exposure and the development of sarcoid-like granulomas, Drent et al.
1990) analyzed fiber content in the lungs from 131 deceased MMVF workers (glass wool, rock wool, and slag wool) from a large U.
However, MMVFs have been anecdotally associated with granulomatous lung disease in several case reports.
DISCUSSION: The contribution of analytical electron microscopy applied in the lung biopsy was imperative to confirm the diagnosis of pneumoconiosis associated with a complex occupational exposure that included both MMVFs and coating materials.
MMVF 10a were kindly provided by Philippe Thevenaz (Research and Consulting Company, Fullinsdorf, Switzerland).
Briefly, aerosols were generated by jet nebulization of droplets of suspensions of MMVF 10a fibers (2 mg/mL in 100% ethanol) into a particle-free air stream.
Twenty fibers had a length-to-diameter ratio of < 3; hence, the particulate fraction of MMVF 10a in the aerosol was 10%.
