Farmers Lung Precipitins

About this test

These tests detect the presence of IgG antibodies to Micropolysporium faeni (Farmer’s lung precipitins).

Farmer's lung is a type of allergic pneumonia specifically associated with breathing air in areas of hay, grain or silage that are contaminated with various molds or heat-tolerant bacteria.

Farmer's lung is not limited to farmers. Anyone who is in a home or office with poor air handling maintenance can also develop Farmer's lung.

Symptoms of Farmer's lung usually appear after working with moldy hay for several months of years.

Symptoms of Farmer's lung include:

  • Increased coughing and mucus production

  • Fever

  • Chills

  • Shortness of breath

  • Discomfort in the lungs

  • Tightness and/or pains in the chest

Individuals with Farmer's lung usually experience more severe symptoms during the winter months.
