smc213FA18 p.657 bird exposure--> HSN pneumonitis (restrictive lung disease) and FA18 p.214 granulomatous diseases: foreign material-->HSN pneumonitis. I had to make sense of it since I didn't know it was HSN pneumonitis at first.+2019-06-29T16:48:41Z
amarousisso it's definitely dust but the specific type of dust was the most important in this question. the fact that they mentioned the birds is important. the dusty books would cause it but the bird dust is more important -.-+2019-06-30T20:04:48Z
charcot_bouchardHypersensitivity Pneumonitis - Organic dust (like moldy hay)
Pneumocniosis - Inorganic dust
none help here though because both will present with same restrictive lung disease picture.
i think since dust in library arent neither organic or inorganic and also u dont see many librarians with lung disease but bird ownership is specifically mentioned as cause of HP disease.+2019-07-10T09:51:39Z
