Abstract
Forty-five Welsh coal-miners with interstitial pulmonary fibrosis have been studied in detail. They differ from other members of the population with this disease by having significantly longer survival. Mean duration of illness was 11.4 +/- 5 years for those who bad died compared with a mean maximum survival of 4.5 years quoted in published series of pulmonary fibrosis of occupational origin. The disease is not unique to South Wales coal-miners. Autopsy studies from two populations of United States miners suggest a similar prevalence. Pathological features are the same in both groups.
