Mycotoxins and Pulmonary Hemorrhage

Arch Pediatr Adolesc Med. 1999;153(2):205. doi:

The article by Etzel et al1 presents results of an investigation that has generated much attention from the public health community. The authors conclude that exposure to toxigenic strains of Stachybotrys atra was associated with the development of acute pulmonary hemorrhage among infants occupying water-damaged building environments. These conclusions have important implications, and further analysis of the data to support them yields observations that warrant additional discussion.
