Infant pulmonary hemorrhage
"From 1993 to 1998, a total of 37 cases of Infant pulmonary hemorrhage (IPH) were found in the Cleveland area. Twelve of these infants died. Another 138 cases have been reported to the CDC from all over the country in that same period. In June 1998 the American Academy of Pediatrics(AAP) published an article warning that infants under 1 year of age should not be exposed to chronically mold contaminated in door environments....Our primary recommendation was that the cause of water entry, the leak in the roof, should be repaired. We also suggested that visible mold and mold contaminated items should be disinfected and/or removed".
