Anthracosis is black pigmentation of tracheo-bronchial tree evident on bronchoscopy. We studied 30 cases with and 53 controls without anthracosis. We found that anthracosis patients are more likely to be middle aged to elderly females with history of active or old pulmonary tuberculosis and evidence of fibrosis on CT chest.
