The article discusses the case on delayed-onset brochiolitis obliterans with organizing pneumonia associated with massive acetic acid steam inhalation of a 34-year-old worker. It states that at the emergency department respiratory distress, hoarseness and swelling of the oropharyngeal mucosa were noted and the chest radiograph shows bilateral infiltration. Moreover, the diagnostic fibreoptic bronchoscopy revealed diffuse trachobronchial mucosal redness and friability.
