    Title: Typical Silicotic Nodules
    Type: Text Slide with Picture
    Content: The Typical Silicotic Nodules Densely Accumulated in the Changed Lung (Note the Distinctness of Each Nodule and the Concentric Layering of Fibers Within the Nodule)
    (From Sklensky, B: Silicosis of Stell Casting Cleaners, J. E. Purkyne University Medical Facility, Brno, Czechoslovakia, 1975)

    Speaker Note: As the disease progresses, the silicotic nodules coalesce and form a continuous mass of fibrotic tissue, called progressive massive fibrosis.
