Occasionally we found in the presence of the diffuse interstitial fibrosis one or more ferruginous bodies that were morphologically consistent with asbestos bodies (Figure 2).
There were 132 classical ferruginous bodies whose typical appearance (clear, elongated fibrous core) suggested that these were formed on asbestos (asbestos bodies).
Applying the classification scheme used earlier (3) to distinguish types of ferruginous bodies from foundry workers, we found that the digested material contained seven Type B ferruginous bodies (a core consisting at the light microscopy level of a thin black filament).
In a previous study, lavage material from five individuals who worked in similar foundries revealed the presence of four morphologically distinct types of ferruginous bodies as seen by light microscopy (3) and classified as Types A,B,C, or D.
The final form of ferruginous body (Type D) was not confused with the other elongated forms of ferruginous bodies that occur on fibrous cores because the material comprising the cores in these entities were plates or "flake-like" structures, and often displayed a yellowish dark golden coloration.
