What is Berylliosis?
(Symptoms, Causes & Treatment)
Berylliosis is a condition identified by lung inflammation caused by inhaling dust or fumes that contain the metallic element beryllium. Beryllium is present in rocks, coal, soil, and volcanic dust. The chemical element is used in the aerospace industry and in many types of manufacturing. Berylliosis occurs in both acute and chronic forms. In some cases, appearance of the disease may be delayed as much as 20 years after exposure to beryllium.
