Description

Dabbing has been gaining popularity among young people in recent years due to its ability to deliver a high concentration of tetrahydrocannabinol. When produced illegally, it is usually contaminated by toxic substances and associated with multiple health hazards. We present the case of a 66-year-old woman who developed hypersensitivity pneumonitis after dabbing butane hash oil for the first time and was successfully treated with corticosteroids with complete resolution of her symptoms. This case report emphasizes the respiratory complications associated with using a noxious substance like butane hash oil and gives physicians an insight into the diagnosis and management of dabbing-induced hypersensitivity pneumonitis.
