Abstract
Environmental data are presented which show heavy concentrations of respirable free silica (7631869) in and outside protective hoods, and account for the high incidence of silicosis in sandblasters and the rapid course of the disease. Study of a group of silicotic workers shows that tuberculosis and other mycobacterial infections commonly complicate accelerated silicosis. The clinical features are reported with the course of the disease in sandblasters. A summary of the roentgenographic and pulmonary physiologic findings for the workers is given with additional information concerning immunologic disorders associated with silicosis and silico- mycobacteriosis. Pulmonary function studies show a mixed pattern of obstruction and restriction associated with impaired gas transfer.
