Unlike our prior study, there was a significant correlation between fibrosis and asbestos body counts by light microscopy (P > .
18) Possible explanations for such cases not meeting histologic criteria for asbestosis include poor coating efficiency (ie, asbestos body formation) for some individuals and sampling error related to variability of asbestos bodies in histologic sections.
Asbestos body concentrations determined by light microscopic analysis greater than 10 000 per gram of dry lung tissue.
