Abstract
Waterproofing spray is commonly used to waterproof textile, tents,
boots, etc. Chemical pneumonitis caused by inhalation of waterproofing
spray has often been reported. Most waterproofing sprays contain a
fluoropolymer in combination with hydrocarbons. However, chemical
pneumonitis caused by waterproofing spray not containing
fluoropolymer is uncommon. The authors are reporting a case of
chemical pneumonitis caused by waterproofing spray, which contained
hydrocarbon only. A 35-year-old man presented with dyspnea. The
patient used a waterproofing spray on a tent for 30 minutes in a closed
room. One hour and a half after spraying, the patient developed
dyspnea, and his dyspnea had gotten worse. The patient’s respiratory
rate was fast, and the patient’s arterial blood gas analysis showed
hypoxemia. The chest X-ray and high resolution computed
tomography showed bilateral ground-glass opacities and areas of
consolidation in both lower lung fields. The patient was diagnosed with
chemical pneumonitis caused by inhalation of waterproofing spray.
Oxygen was given to the patient, and the patient was started on
methylprednisolone intravenously. The patient’s symptom improved
after one day. After one week, most of symptoms of the patient
improved and his chest X-ray showed improvement, so the patient
was discharged. After discharge, oral prednisolone was prescribed
instead of methylprednisolone, and was gradually tapered off. One month later, the patient’s chest X-ray showed
complete resolution.
