Abstract
Extrinsic asthma, farmer's lung, and silo-filler's disease are the three pulmonary diseases which are either more common or harder to manage in the farm setting. Extrinsic asthma and farmer's lung are allergic in nature, the former caused by inhalant allergens which penetrate only the proximal part of the pulmonary tree, and the latter caused by inhalant allergens which are able to penetrate much more distally. Silo-filler's disease is a response to exposure to a toxic gas, nitrogen-dioxide (10102440). Extrinsic asthma may be triggered by many inhalant allergens including pollens, mold spores, animal danders, and dusts. Both farmer's lung and silo-filler's disease may develop following exposure to silage; however, the former is due to inhalation of actinomycete spores in old decaying silage, whereas the latter is due to inhalation of nitrogen-dioxide fumes generated in fresh silage during the first weeks of storage.
