The title of the article “CaesarStone Silicosis: Disease Resurgence Among Artificial Stone Workers” published in the August 2012 issue of CHEST (2012;142:419-424) has been changed to “Artificial Stone Silicosis: Disease Resurgence Among Artificial Stone Workers.”
The term “CaesarStone silicosis” has been changed to “artificial stone silicosis” in Table 1 and in the text of the article, and the phrase has been removed from the Figure 2 legend.
The title of Table 1 on page 422 has been changed to: “Demographic and Clinical Characteristics of 15 Patients Determined to be Transplant Candidates and of 10 Patients Who Underwent LTX for Artificial Stone Silicosis.”
In the Figure 2B legend on page 423, the text now reads: “CT scan of lung transplant candidate with advanced silicosis due to artificial stone inhalation with progressive massive fibrosis at presentation.”
The text in paragraph 3 in the second column on page 422 now reads: “It is likely that many other cases of artificial stone silicosis and related synthetic stone lung diseases are yet to be diagnosed.”
