Coal Workers’ Pneumoconiosis Lung and Airway Disorders

In simple coal workers’ pneumoconiosis, coal dust collects around the small airways (bronchioles) of the lungs. Every year, 1 to 2% of people with simple coal workers’ pneumoconiosis develop a more serious form of the disease called progressive massive fibrosis, in which large scars (at least ½ inch [about 1.3 centimeters] in diameter) develop in the lungs as a reaction to the dust.

Coalworker's pneumoconiosis

Coal workers' pneumoconiosis (CWP), also known as black lung disease or black lung, is caused by long-term exposure to coal dust. It is common in coal miners and others who work with coal. It is similar to both silicosis from inhaling silica dust and asbestosis from inhaling asbestos dust. Inhaled coal dust progressively builds up in the lungs and leads to inflammation, fibrosis, and in worse
