Abstract
A perplexing and serious medical problem along the Arctic coast has been the occurrence of pneumonias in infants and children that result in permanent pulmonary scarring. These pneumonias are clinically consistent with acute bacterial pneumonitis; however, they are atypical in respect to the high incidence of pulmonary scarring and bronchiectasis following these acute episodes. The hypothesis was proposed that the high incidence of pneumonia with pulmonary scarring is a result of seal oil lipid pneumonia. Clinical and epidemiological studies substantiating this hypothesis are described here.
