Diesel Siphonoer`s Lung.
Pak J Chest Med Jan ;25(1):32-4.
Petroleum diesel is a complex mixture of liquid hydrocarbons and mainly used as fuel in transport vehicles. The practice of manual siphoning of diesel from fuel tanks is common in developing countries but hydrocarbon pneumonitis due to diesel siphonage is rarely reported. We report pneumonitis following diesel fuel siphonage in a 32-year-old male patient. Initially patient had severe nausea and vomiting followed by chest pain and breathlessness after six days. Recovery was complete with medical treatment.
