Abstract

In Muenster in 1957 [1], I presented a paper entitled “A preliminary experimental assessment of the significance of asbestos bodies”. I stated in the paper that following Fahr’s [2] first observation of peculiar bodies in sections from the lung of a patient dying of asbestosis, there had been considerable controversy concerning the composition of these bodies and the role that they play in the pathogenesis of the disease.
