Dr. Konstantinos Farsalinos has discharged media accusations after a story of an 18 year old woman developed a rare condition following 3 weeks use of an E-Cigarette.

Dr. Farsalinos Denounces Wet Lung HeadlinesStating that this is a “new low for e-cigarette opponents” Dr. Farsalinos went on to explain the woman had a medical history involving mild asthma, and then had an allergic reaction.

This unfortunate combination triggered a reaction resulting in pneumonia.

Media donned the story as a “Wet Lung” a term Dr. Farsalinos says is rarely used in the medical world.

A term he says was used to sensationalize the story.

The 18 year old woman was said to have been using electronic cigarettes in the weeks leading up to her pneumonia in an effort to give up smoking.

Once at the hospital the 18 year old was diagnosed with havinghypersensitivity pneumonitis” a condition triggered by many allergens, including dust.

Dr. Casey Somerfield, the patients doctor, stated in his report that “there are a few case reports involving adults that developed respiratory distress following electronic cigarette use.”

Dr. Konstantinos Farsalinos closed with this final thought. “This is the first time that I see a case report being featured in the media.

This is a new low for e-cigarette opponents. The “wet lung” is… total nonsense. The case was about an allergic reaction causing pneumonia.”
