Abstract

Background:
We present the case of a 35-year-old male who developed a chronic hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP) following inhalational exposure to a fluorocarbon waterproofing aerosol spray, caused by his work for an upholstery and soft furnishings retailer. This is the first case report from inhalational fluorocarbon exposure with histological evidence of chronic HP. This is then discussed in the context of previous reports of interstitial lung disease and lung injury, caused by similar occupational and non-occupational exposures.
