Pulmonary siderosis or Welder's lung is a rare occupational lung disease which occurs due to long term inhalation of iron compounds. It is most commonly seen in arc-welders. Most of the patients are asymptomatic with mild or no functional impairment. We report a case of pulmonary siderosis with symptomatic respiratory disease and restrictive pattern in pulmonary function test.
