Asbestos Bodies

Claudio Bianchi

The core of the body is a colourless need-like fiber of asbestos. The host tissue uncompletely embeds the body with material composed by iron and protein. This is golden yellow. Asbestos bodies do not represent all asbestos presence in the lung. In fact, high number of asbestos fibers remain unembedded. Nevertheless, asbestos bodies represent a very precious marker that documents a previous asbestos exposure.
