Abstract

Cotton dust exposure has been implicated in causing diseases like byssinosis and obstructive airway diseases like COPD and asthma. Long-term exposure to cotton dust causing interstitial lung disease and pulmonary fibrosis has been sparsely reported in the literature. Here, we report a case of an individual with long-term cotton dust exposure who presented with typical symptoms of interstitial lung disease and was managed conservatively.
