The microorganisms isolated were Klebsiella, Pseudomonas aerogenes. Staphylococcus aureus, Proteus vulgaris, Streptococcus pyogenes and Citrobacter, Corynebacterium [Actinomyces] pyogenes, Escherichia coli and Proteus rettgeri. Pneumoconiosis was detected in 4 cases, and parasitic infestation was observed in 5 cases. A variety of microorganisms were isolated from the affected pulmonary tissues.
