Abstract

Objective:

To analyze the clinical,imaging and pathological features of Pleuroparenehymal fibroelastosis (PPFE).

Methods:

The clinieal data of a patient diagnosed as PPFE admitted in department of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine,Beijing Hospital in April 2017 were reported and the related literatures were reviewed.With "pleuroparenehymal fibroelastosis" as the search terms, and the search time before October 1st 2017 for Wanfangdata, China National Knowledge Infrastructure(CNKI), and PubMed.

Results:

The patient was a 46-year-old male presented with cough, shortness of breath after exercise.A CT scan of the chest revealed bilateral, irregular pleural thickening with upper lobe predominance.After 3 years of antituberculosis treatment,the disease progressed. A diagnosis of pleuroparenehymal fibroelastosis (PPFE) was confirmed by CT guided lung biopsy. A total of 132 cases were reported (including 1 case in Chinese). 88 of them were confirmed by pathology with detailed data.Clinical data of 89 reported cases with PPFE including 48 males and 41 females aged 13 to 85 years were enrolled and analyzed in the study.The common symptoms were dyspnea(62%, 55 cases),cough(58%, 52 cases),recurrent respiratory tract infection(17%, 15 cases).The main CT features are reported:pleural thickening(87%,77 cases), recurrent pneumothorax(52%,46 cases), traction bronchiectasis(30%, 27 cases),subpleural comsolidation(20%, 18 cases). All patients were proven PPFE by biopsy.34 cases received corticosteroid, 5 cases received lung transplant operation.40 cases died during the follow-up from 4 month to 84 month.

Conclusions:

Pleuroparenehymal fibroelastosis is a rare disease.The imaging findings were dominated by both upper lobes. Lung biopsy might be necessary. PPFE is often misdiagnosed as pulmonary tuberculosis/obsolete pulmonary tuberculosis,asbestosis,connective tissues disease and Drug-induced pneumonitis.There was no consensus on the treatment.
