In several statistical analyses, the classifiers consistently differentiated IPF from multiple ILDs, including non-specific interstitial pneumonia
(NSIP) and hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP).
Clinical significance of histological classification of idiopathic interstitial pneumonia
Pathologically, AEs show a combination of an underlying fibrotic interstitial pneumonia
and a superimposed form of acute lung injury, either diffuse alveolar damage (DAD) or organizing pneumonia (OP) (6).
Radiologic findings are strongly associated with a pathologic diagnosis of usual interstitial pneumonia
The definitive diagnosis--by high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) and/or surgical lung biopsy--depends on the finding of what is referred to as a usual interstitial pneumonia
(UIP) pattern, (1), (4) as distinct from an NSIP pattern.
The text opens with an historical overview, followed by physiological and radiological features of common ILDs, such as idiopathic interstitial pneumonia
, non-specific interstitial pneumonitis, and sarcoidosis, and uncommon ILDs, such as lymphangioleiomyomatosis, Langerhans cell granulomatosis, drug-induced lung disease, eosinophilic lung disease, alveolar proteinosis, and alveolar michrolithiasis.
Diffuse alveolar damage and usual interstitial pneumonia
are poor prognostic subtypes, with only a 33% 5-years survival rate (13).
