Abstract
Pulmonary mycotoxicosis is described in patients who had inhaled massive amounts of fungi while removing moldy silage from the top of silos. Immunologic studies showed no sensitivity to various fungal antigen preparations, and histologic study of the lung showed a multifocal acute process, with primary involvement of the terminal bronchioles containing large numbers of various spores. Cultures from lung biopsy material revealed at least five fungal organisms. A one to 10 year followup indicates that avoidance of massive reexposure to fungal dust is the key to the prevention of recurrent pulmonary mycotoxicosis.
