“ASIA” (Auto immune/Inflammatory Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants) is the spectrum of immune-mediated diseases triggered by an adjuvant such as silicone. We report a case of pulmonary fibrosis possibly falling within the scope of ASIA associated with chronic exposure to silicone gel used in sewing machines. To our knowledge, no case of ASIA has been described following the manipulation of silicone gel from sewing machines.
