Coal Miners' Pneumoconiosis Radiology

2021-6-10  It is well known that coal mining is a hazardous occupation as a result of accidents, explosions, and roof cave-ins. Less commonly known outside the mining areas and compensation boards is an insidious, but frequently incapacitating, pulmonary condition that has been referred to in American literature as silicosis, anthracosilicosis, anthracosis, miners' asthma and, more recently, coal miners

Coal Worker’s Pneumoconiosis (Black Lung Disease

Coal workers' pneumoconiosis (CWP), commonly known as "black lung disease," occurs when coal dust is inhaled. Over time, continued exposure to the coal dust causes scarring in the lungs, impairing your ability to breathe. Considered an occupational lung disease, it is most common among coal miners.

Coal-miners' pneumoconiosis was the first industrial disease to be described in Great Britain (by GREGORY in 1831), but no further detailed study of the disease was made public until the Medical Research Council published their report in 1942 [this Bulletin, 1942, v. 17, 512], followed by the Goulstonian Lectures of FLETCHER in 1948 [ibid., 1948, v. 23, 693].

Pneumoconiosis Johns Hopkins Medicine

Pneumoconiosis can be simple or complicated. Simple pneumoconiosis causes a small amount of scar tissue. The tissue may appear on an X-ray as round, thickened areas called nodules. This type of the disease is sometimes called coal worker pneumoconiosis, or CWP. Complicated pneumoconiosis is known as progressive massive fibrosis, or PMF.
