Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Summary list

All of these diseases have been shown to contribute to the cause and the worsening of this disease. If you have any of these conditions listed below, then that disease or condition may be worsening your “idiopathic” Pulmonary Fibrosis and also treated!

“Never Give Up, Never Surrender!”

Description: A common interstitial lung disease of unknown etiology, usually occurring between 50-70 years of age. Clinically, it is characterized by an insidious onset of breathlessness with exertion and a nonproductive cough, leading to progressive DYSPNEA. Pathological features show scant interstitial inflammation, patchy collagen fibrosis, prominent fibroblast proliferation foci, and microscopic honeycomb change.

Also Known As: Usual Interstitial Pneumonia; Cryptogenic Fibrosing Alveolitides; Fibrosing Alveolitides, Cryptogenic; Fibrosing Alveolitis, Cryptogenic; Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibroses Show All >>
