Asbestosis was first recognized as an entity at autopsy by a pathologist in 1900. Pathologists also discovered the unique relationship of mesothelioma and bronchogenic carcinoma with exposure to asbestos. The observations of preceding pathologists have provided insights that have served as the basis for epidemiologic studies associating asbestos with disease in humans.
