Pneumonitis is the medical term for the inflammation of the lung tissue. It occurs when the walls of the air sacs (alveoli) are irritated by various allergens or airborne toxic agents. In certain cases, pneumonitis might be the early sign of asbestos-related diseases like mesothelioma or asbestosis, preceding their onset.
