PURPOSE: To investigate the imaging findings of lung injury caused by gas from smoke bomb

METHODS: The imaging fingdings of 15 cases with clinical manifestations induced by inhalation of gas from smoke bomb were analyzed

RESULTS: The clinical manifestations induced by inhalation of gas from smoke pot mainly included cough, sputum, vomiting, dyspnea and dizziness. Of the 15 cases, 6 cases showed no imaging findings of lung injury. Computed tomography of chest mainly showed ground glass opacity, consolidation, interlobular septal thickening, stripe shadow, reticular shadow and nodule in the other 9 cases. Spontaneous pneumomediastinum was noted in one case. One case died of pulmonary fibrosis. The abnormal imaging findings in the rest cases were complete absorbed after therapy.

CONCLUSIONS: Varied manifestation could occur during aspiration pneumonia owing to inhalation of gas from smoke bomb poisoning with complex changes in severe cases.

CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS: CT imaging manifestations played an important role in observing lung injuries.
