Baritosis is a benign type of pneumoconiosis, which is caused by
long-term exposure to barium dust. Barium has a high radio-opacity
and the disease may develop after few months of exposure. Extremely
dense, discrete small opacities of 2-4 mm diameter, sometimes of a
star-like configuration, are seen on the radiograph. Their
distribution is uniform. When they are very numerous,
superimposition may give the impression of confluency, but this
does not seem to occur in reality. The hilar lymph nodes can be
very opaque but not enlarged. After cessation of exposure, there is
a gradual clearing of the opacities.
