Using chest CT, Korean researchers have accurately located and diagnosed damage produced in the lungs of patients who have accidentally swallowed fuel while siphoning it from car tanks.

Using chest CT, Korean researchers have accurately located and diagnosed damage produced in the lungs of patients who have accidentally swallowed fuel while siphoning it from car tanks.

Dr. Mi Seon Yi and colleagues at the National University School of Medicine in Busan identified five patients with hydrocarbon pneumonitis who underwent chest CT.

Hydrocarbon pneumonitis led to necrotic air-space consolidation predominantly in the right middle lobe.

Findings were published in the October issue of the American Journal of Roentgenology.
