Silicosis is a fibrotic lung disease caused by inhalation of free crystalline silicon dioxide or silica. Occupational exposure to respirable crystalline silica.

Inhalation of coal mine dust is known to cause several types of respiratory disease. To emphasize that there is a spectrum, these have recently been termed coal.

Silicosis is a debilitating and often fatal coal worker's occupational lung disease caused by the prolonged exposure and inhalation of free crystalline silica. Background: A meta-analysis was performed to evaluate the relationship between chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and occupational dust exposure, and to Cited by: 4.
