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. Two of the most common symptoms of pneumonitis are a dry cough and a burning sensation in the chest.

If you have a history of occupational asbestos exposure, we encourage you to visit at least two experts. A wrong diagnosis will affect both your prognosis and your chances of recovering financial compensation from asbestos trust funds.
