Extract

Reactive airway dysfunction syndrome (RADS) is a severe form of irritant-induced occupational asthma with acute onset after a single exposure to high levels of a respiratory irritant without a latency period. The pathophysiology of RADS is not well understood but it is thought that high concentrations of an irritant substance may cause airway injury which leads to chronic airway inflammation, hyperresponsiveness and remodelling. Data on long term outcomes of RADS is limited.

Chemical pneumonitis is rarely reported together with RADS and we report the case of a patient who presented with pneumonitis after accidental inhalation of an industrial disinfectant with subsequent diagnosis of RADS.
