The use of electronic cigarettes, known as vaping, has become increasingly popular over the past decade, particularly in the adolescent and young adult population, often exposing users to harmful chemicals. Vaping has been associated with a heterogeneous group of pulmonary disease. Recently, a multistate epidemic has emerged surrounding vaping-related acute lung injury, prompting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to list an official health advisory. In this review, we describe the current literature on the epidemiology, clinical significance, as well as recommended evaluation and treatment of vaping-related lung injury.
