Anthracosis: cause of black patch in trachea and bronchial tree

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.

Antracosis: causa de parches de pigmentación color negro en la tráquea y el árbol bronquial

La antracosis es la pigmentación negra del árbol traqueobronquial observada mediante broncoscopia. Estudiamos 30 casos con antracosis y 53 controles sin antracosis. Hallamos que los pacientes con antracosis tienen una probabilidad elevada de ser mujeres de mediana edad o edad avanzada, con antecedentes de tuberculosis pulmonar activa o antigua y observación de fibrosis en la tomografía computarizada de tórax.
