You can find out more information about pulmnonary fibrosis through the website
Respiratory on the Web at:

http://www.xmission.com/~gastown/herpmed/respi.htm

and searching the various links therein.

Pulmonary fibrosis can be idiopathic  (genetic...?) as well as due to the
inhalation over time of various particulates, usually associated with an
occupation such as baker's lung (flour dust), quarry-worker's lung (granite),
black lung (coal mine dust), bird breeders lung and so on. These fibrotic diseases
as a whole are called occupational pneumoconioses.

Please feel free to write me by private e-mail with more details concerning your
cases.
