Preliminary questions [40653]

40675

there is some evidence that evidence of sensitisation to beryllium may be a factor in the development or worsening of the condition under consideration.

40708the veteran has berylliosis.

40709

the veteran has clinical evidence of sensitisation to beryllium by positive findings on beryllium lymphocyte proliferation testing of blood or bronchoalveolar lavage fluid.

40712the veteran has established the causal connection between having evidence of sensitisation to beryllium and VEA service for fibrosing interstitial lung disease.

40710

the veteran was exposed to beryllium dust or fumes before the clinical onset of fibrosing interstitial lung disease.

40713the veteran has established the causal connection between having evidence of sensitisation to beryllium and VEA service for the clinical onset of fibrosing interstitial lung disease.

40715the veteran has established the causal connection between having evidence of sensitisation to beryllium and operational service for the clinical onset of fibrosing interstitial lung disease.

or

7334

the clinical onset of the condition under consideration occurred after the end of the veteran's last period of VEA service.

7335

the condition under consideration permanently worsened.

40711

the veteran was exposed to beryllium dust or fumes after the clinical onset and before the clinical worsening of fibrosing interstitial lung disease.

40714the veteran has established the causal connection between having evidence of sensitisation to beryllium and VEA service for the clinical worsening of fibrosing interstitial lung disease.

40717the veteran has established the causal connection between having evidence of sensitisation to beryllium and operational service for the clinical worsening of fibrosing interstitial lung disease.

or

40718the veteran has established the causal connection between having evidence of sensitisation to beryllium and eligible service for the clinical worsening of fibrosing interstitial lung disease.

Clinical onset and operational service [40715]

40719

on operational service, the veteran was exposed to beryllium dust or fumes before the clinical onset of fibrosing interstitial lung disease.

40726

the exposure to beryllium dust or fumes before the clinical onset of fibrosing interstitial lung disease, on operational service, was due to the veteran's serious default, wilful act or serious breach of discipline.

Clinical onset and eligible service [40716]

40720

on eligible service, the veteran was exposed to beryllium dust or fumes before the clinical onset of fibrosing interstitial lung disease.

40723

as a causal result of eligible service, the veteran was exposed to beryllium dust or fumes before the clinical onset of fibrosing interstitial lung disease.

40727

the exposure to beryllium dust or fumes before the clinical onset of fibrosing interstitial lung disease, on eligible service, was due to the veteran's serious default, wilful act or serious breach of discipline.

Clinical worsening and operational service [40717]

40721

on operational service, the veteran was exposed to beryllium dust or fumes after the clinical onset and before the clinical worsening of fibrosing interstitial lung disease.

40724

as a causal result of operational service, the veteran was exposed to beryllium dust or fumes after the clinical onset and before the clinical worsening of fibrosing interstitial lung disease.

40728

the exposure to beryllium dust or fumes before the clinical worsening of fibrosing interstitial lung disease, on operational service, was due to the veteran's serious default, wilful act or serious breach of discipline.

Clinical worsening and eligible service [40718]

40722

on eligible service, the veteran was exposed to beryllium dust or fumes after the clinical onset and before the clinical worsening of fibrosing interstitial lung disease.

40725

as a causal result of eligible service, the veteran was exposed to beryllium dust or fumes after the clinical onset and before the clinical worsening of fibrosing interstitial lung disease.

40729

the exposure to beryllium dust or fumes before the clinical worsening of fibrosing interstitial lung disease, on eligible service, was due to the veteran's serious default, wilful act or serious breach of discipline.
