Respiratory failure recognised as an occupational disease

Some respiratory failures may be recognised as occupational diseases. A granuloma can form in the lungs when a foreign matter  enters in the lungs  : for example when the oil vapours are inhaled. 

The respiratory failure results from a pulmonary granuloma ( medically confirmed) or an hypersensitivity pneumonitis
