OBJECTIVE. E-cigarettes are devices that aerosolize nicotine- or cannabis-based concentrates mixed with other solvents and have been marketed as an alternative to cigarettes. E-cigarette use, or vaping, is increasingly popular but has not been proven to be an innocuous substitute for traditional smoking. Several patterns of vaping-associated inhalational lung injuries have been reported in the past few years. This article reviews many of the imaging patterns that have been encountered in… Expand
Electronic Cigarette or Vaping Product Use-Associated Lung Injury in a Previously Healthy Young Male
TLDR
The first case of EVALI in the state of Qatar is presented, and it is shown that e-cigarette or vaping product use-associated lung injury in healthy people is associated with severe acute lung injury. Expand
Vaping-related lung injury
TLDR
This review discusses electronic nicotine delivery systems as well as the etiology, clinical presentation, imaging findings, pathologic features, treatment, and long-term consequences of EVALI and concludes with the practical impact EVALi has had on the practice of pathology. Expand
Review of Cases of E-Cigarette or Vaping Product Use-Associated Lung Injury (EVALI) and Brief Review of the Literature
TLDR
This report reports two confirmed cases of EVALI and their associated clinical, radiologic, and pathologic features and discusses various substances, particularly vitamin E acetate, which has been suggested as a causative agent. Expand
E-cigarette, or vaping, product use-associated lung injury in adolescents: a review of imaging features
TLDR
In the teenage population, e-cigarette, or vaping, product use-associated lung injury (EVALI) is characterized by centrilobular ground-glass nodules and ground- glass opacities with subpleural sparing, which is most consistent with acute lung injury resulting from toxic inhalation. Expand
A Case of Vaping-associated Acute Lung Injury
TLDR
As e-cigarette and vaping use is becoming increasingly popular, particularly in the younger population, it is important to become familiar with this entity to ensure proper and timely diagnosis to prevent lifelong sequelae. Expand
A Case-Based Review of Vaping-Induced Injury-Pulmonary Toxicity and Beyond.
TLDR
This unique case series highlights both pulmonary and extra-pulmonary ECIG-induced injuries including vape tip ingestion, maxillofacial fractures after vape pen explosion, myocarditis, and several different manifestations of vaping-associated lung injury. Expand
E-cigarette or Vaping- product associated lung injury: A review.
TLDR
This review article aims to describe e-cigarette or vaping-product associated lung injury, its pathogenesis, clinical, radiological manifestations and management. Expand
Vaping-associated lung injury case report: A community hospital’s perspective
TLDR
The case reports highlight the increasing need for clinical awareness of EVALI, improved diagnostic tools for a timely diagnosis, and effective treatments of this potentially fatal respiratory illness. Expand
E-Cigarette or Vaping Product Use-Associated Lung Injury: A Review for Pathologists.
TLDR
Most cases of vaping-associated lung injury have been linked to vaping products containing tetrahydrocannabinol or other cannabinoids and it remains a diagnosis of exclusion that requires clinicopathologic correlation. Expand
Radiologic Review With Pathology Correlation of E-Cigarette or Vaping Product Use-associated Lung Injury
TLDR
The diagnosis of vaping-associated lung injury should be considered in patients who have vaped within 90 days of onset of symptoms and present with bilateral lung opacities, and many other patterns are known to occur. Expand

Acute lung injury secondary to e-cigarettes or vaping
TLDR
Physicians should be alert to recognizing patterns of lung injury, as well as emphasizing to patients the importance of e-cigarette cessation, with radiographic findings including diffuse pulmonary infiltrates. Expand
Case report of electronic cigarettes possibly associated with eosinophilic pneumonitis in a previously healthy active-duty sailor.
TLDR
Though an alternative to traditional cigarettes, e-cigarettes can have unpredictable and potentially serious adverse effects and more research needs to be conducted to determine their safety. Expand
Organizing pneumonia related to electronic cigarette use: A case report and review of literature
TLDR
The use of e cigarettes has risen dramatically in recent years especially among adolescents and young adults, and these devices have been marketed as safer alternatives to tobacco smoking by their manufactures despite lack of adequate safety data. Expand
Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis and Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome From E-Cigarette Use
TLDR
This is the first reported case of hypersensitivity pneumonitis and acute respiratory distress syndrome as a risk of e-cigarette use in an adolescent, and it should prompt pediatricians to discuss the potential harms of vaping with their patients. Expand
Vaping cannabis (marijuana): parallel concerns to e-cigs?
TLDR
The quandary of whether or not to promote vaping as a safer method of cannabis administration for those wishing to use cannabis, and how to regulate vaping and vaping devices, necessitates substantial investigation and discussion. Expand
An unexpected consequence of electronic cigarette use.
TLDR
A 42-year-old woman was admitted to the hospital with a 7-month history of dyspnea, productive cough, and subjective fevers, and a recent exposure to fumigation chemicals, as the result of a bedbug infestation of her apartment building 2 weeks prior to her hospitalization. Expand
A Systematic Literature Review of E-Cigarette-Related Illness and Injury: Not Just for the Respirologist
TLDR
The current review showed that e-cigarette-related health effects extend beyond the acute lung injury syndrome, including traumatic, thermal injuries and acute intoxications, and regulators and public health authorities should address the regulatory gap regarding electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) and novel tobacco products. Expand
Cobalt related interstitial lung disease.
TLDR
Case reports suggest that treatment with steroids results in symptomatic, physiologic, and radiographic improvement in cobalt related ILD and removal from exposure is the most important step in treatment. Expand
