A case of bronchiolitis obliterans after prior inhalation of NO2 is described. The diagnosis was confirmed histologically following diagnostic thoracotomy and biopsy by means of pulmonary wedge resection. The clinical course of the case was compatible with the typical phases described in the literature, and the condition underwent complete remission following treatment with corticoids.
