INTRODUCTION: Occupation related exposures in paper and pulp factory workers have been implicated in chronic bronchitis, asthma, and general symptoms of breathlessness. Symptoms have been attributed to exposure to paper dust as well as non-organic chemicals. We describe a case of chronic eosinophilic pneumonia (CEP) in a patient with prolonged employment at a cardboard factory.
