Pneumoconiosis
MeSH HeadingPneumoconiosis
Tree NumberC08.381.483.581
Tree NumberC08.381.520.702
Tree NumberC24.800
Annotationgeneral or unspecified; prefer specifics; index specific pneumoconiosis for which there is no MeSH term here + substance yielding dust, as pneumoconiosis in gold mining: PNEUMOCONIOSIS (IM) + GOLD (IM) + MINING (IM); do not coordinate with OCCUPATIONAL DISEASES
Scope NoteA diffuse parenchymal lung disease caused by inhalation of dust and by tissue reaction to their presence. These inorganic, organic, particulate, or vaporized matters usually are inhaled by workers in their occupational environment, leading to the various forms ( ASBESTOSIS; BYSSINOSIS; and others). Similar air pollution can also have deleterious effects on the general population.
