Asbestosis can be considered either a clinical disease, which is manifest functionally, and readily demonstrable by radiological means, or a pathological entity of variable degrees of severity, but often as scattered localized lesions in the lungs in the absence of clinically evident respiratory insufficiency. This chapter considers the pathogenesis and pathological features of asbestosis from the perspective of its epidemiology.

Keywords:   asbestosis, epidemiology, asbestos contamination, pathogenesis features, pathological features
