Does Stachybotrys chartarum (Stachybotrys atra) cause acute idiopathic pulmonary hemorrhage among infants?
One study of a geographical cluster of ten infants tied Idiopathic pulmonary hemorrhage to contaminants in the home related to mold and water damage.
Matched analysis demonstrated that case infants’ homes were more likely to have had water damage preceding the pulmonary hemorrhage event (odds ratio, 16.25; 95% confidence interval, 2.55 to ∞). Case infants were also more likely to have had close relatives with pulmonary hemorrhage (odds ratio, 33.14; 95% confidence interval, 5.10 to ∞). In addition, 50.0% of case infants experienced recurrent pulmonary hemorrhaging after returning to their homes.
