Pulmonary stannosis

Pulmonary stannosis is a condition in which tin oxide is deposited in lung tissue after inhalation. Tin oxides i.e. stannous oxide (SnO) and stannic oxide (SnO2) is radiologically visible and is extremely dense, although there is no tissue reaction to its presence. Due to this reason it is sometimes classified as a non fibrotic pneumoconiosis
