  • the must-know findings of two common entities: inorganic dust pneumoconiosis and asbestos-related parenchymal and pleural disease
  • uncommon effects of inhaled agents: acute lung injury and constrictive bronchiolitis
  • manifestations of hypersensitivity pneumonitis due to antigens in the workplace
