Pathology Insights Video Series

Pathology of Vaping-Associated Lung Injury

Presented by Sanjay Mukhopadhyay, MD

Sanjay Mukhopadhyay, MD, discusses the findings of a study on the lung pathology of vaping.

Featured in an article co-authored by Dr. Mukhopadhyay and published in the American Journal of Clinical Pathology, the study focuses on the results of microscopic examination of biopsied lung tissue from individuals who developed severe lung illness associated with vaping.

This is one of the first case series in the world to examine lung biopsies from patients with vaping-associated lung illness and is the first-ever study on vaping published in a pathology journal. These findings have important public health implications and are detailed in the video.
