MOLINARI, Luciana; ALVAREZ, Clarisa  and  SEMENIUK, Guillermo B.. Arc welder's lung. Medicina (B. Aires) [online]. 2010, vol.70, n.6, pp.527-528. ISSN 0025-7680.

Pneumoconiosis of electric arc welder or siderotic pneumoconiosis was described by Doig and McLaughlin in 1936 as a lung disease caused by chronic inhalation of iron fumes in electric arc welders. We present a case report of electric arc welder siderosis associated with high levels of ferritin, without findings of iron deposit in any other organ.

Keywords : Arc welder lung; Hemosiderosis; Siderotic pneumoconiosis.
