Charcoal lung. Bronchiolitis obliterans after aspiration of activated charcoal.


:Activated charcoal usually provides effective and safe treatment for drug overdose. We describe a patient who developed bronchiolitis obliterans and respiratory failure following aspiration of activated charcoal. This patient had a markedly reduced vital capacity with roentgenographic evidence of airtrapping. Chest roentgenograms did not demonstrate the large amount of charcoal identified at postmortem examination.

Studies have suggested that SCLC may affect the immune system to allow it to evade immunologic responses.
