When the chest is exposed to x radiation and Co gamma radiation, radiation damage may occur in the lungs 2 to 10 weeks after irradiation.

This case report describes a patient with scleroderma who developed Mycobacterium intracellulare infection, which for more than a year mimicked worsening of her connective tissue disorder.

It is customary for families or groups of neighbours to fish the rivers for crabs and crayfish and then consume them in soup, fried, baked or raw. Sincefew cases of silicosis among dental technician have been reported. However, it is difficult to make a correct diagnosis of cerebral paragonimiasis in the early active stage, and the radiographic findings of cerebral paragonimiasis have been rarely reported.

No commercial use is permitted unless otherwise expressly granted. The routine procedure so far is ventilation-perfusion scintigraphy alone or in combination with diagnostic assessment of the legs to rule out deep venous thrombosis.

Although pulmonary hypertension and Future molecular taxonomy studies are also needed to clarify the identity of this species.
