  • StatPearls: Acute Interstitial Pneumonia (Hamman Rich Syndrome) [BOOK]
    . StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Mrad Ali A Henry Ford Health System Huda Najia N Henry Ford Hospital BOOK
  • Acute interstitial pneumonia (AIP - also known as Hamman-Rich syndrome) is an acute, rapidly progressive idiopathic pulmonary disease that often leads to fulminant respiratory failure and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).[1] It can be distinguished clinically from other types of interstitial pneumonia by the rapid onset of respiratory failure in a patient without preexisting lung diseas…
  • An Elusive Case of Acute Interstitial Pneumonia. [Case Reports]
    Cureus. 2019 May 17; 11(5):e4685.Obasi J
  • Acute interstitial pneumonia (AIP) is a rare and severe form of diffuse lung injury that affects previously healthy individuals. It is a subset of idiopathic lung disease with a rapidly progressive course. The prognosis is poor with over 50% of patients dying during hospital admission from progressive respiratory failure. Presented herein is a case of a previously healthy 64-year-old woman withou…
  • Primary Sjogren's Syndrome Presenting as Acute Interstitial Pneumonitis/Hamman-Rich Syndrome. [Journal Article]
    Case Rep Med. 2016; 2016:4136765.Khan A, Humayun M, … Ajmal F
  • A previously well, 45-year-old Pakistani lady was admitted to the medical unit on-call of Khyber Teaching Hospital (KTH) Peshawar with a 5-day history of fever, productive cough with copious mucoid sputum, dyspnea, and pleuritic chest pain. She also complained of dry eyes, mouth, and vagina. Her chest X-ray showed diffuse alveolar shadowing and arterial gas analysis confirmed type 1 respiratory f…
  • PD-1 Inhibitor-Related Pneumonitis in Advanced Cancer Patients: Radiographic Patterns and Clinical Course. [Clinical Trial]
    Clin Cancer Res. 2016 Dec 15; 22(24):6051-6060.Nishino M, Ramaiya NH, … Hodi FS
  • CONCLUSIONS: PD-1 inhibitor-related pneumonitis showed a spectrum of radiographic patterns, reflecting pneumonitis grades. COP was the most common pattern across tumor types and therapeutic regimens. Most patients were successfully treated with corticosteroids. Recurrent pneumonitis and pneumonitis flare were noted in a few patients. Clin Cancer Res; 22(24); 6051-60. ©2016 AACRSee related commentary by Castanon, p. 5956.
  • Acute and subacute idiopathic interstitial pneumonias. [Review]
    Respirology. 2016 Jul; 21(5):810-20.Taniguchi H, Kondoh Y
  • Idiopathic interstitial pneumonias (IIPs) may have an acute or subacute presentation, or acute exacerbation may occur in a previously subclinical or unrecognized chronic IIP. Acute or subacute IIPs include acute interstitial pneumonia (AIP), cryptogenic organizing pneumonia (COP), nonspecific interstitial pneumonia (NSIP), acute exacerbation of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (AE-IPF) and AE-NSIP. …
  • Azacitidine-associated acute interstitial pneumonitis. [Case Reports]
    Intern Med. 2014; 53(11):1165-9.Kuroda J, Shimura Y, … Taniwaki M
  • Azacitidine is the first-line therapeutic option for myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). This report describes a case of MDS in a patient who developed fatal acute interstitial pneumonitis (AIP) after the first seven-day course of intravenous azacitidine (75 mg/m(2)/day) treatment. A review of previous and present studies of azacitidine-associated AIP suggests that azacitidine may cause life-threaten…
  • Bronchoalveolar lavage in malignancy. [Review]
    Semin Respir Crit Care Med. 2007 Oct; 28(5):534-45.Poletti V, Poletti G, … Chilosi M
  • Bronchoalveolar lavage is a useful diagnostic tool in diffuse or disseminated lung malignancies that do not involve the bronchial structures visible by endoscopy. The neoplastic histotype and the intraparenchymal neoplastic growth pattern are good predictors for diagnostic yield; adenocarcinoma, and tumors with lymphangitic or lepidic growth patterns are more easily diagnosed by bronchoalveolar l…
  • [Interstitial pulmonary diseases]. [Review]
    Pathologe. 2006 Mar; 27(2):116-32.Brasch F
  • Interstitial pneumonia is a rare disease, posing a diagnostic challenge to pneumologists, pediatricians, radiologists and pathologists. Only by the combined efforts of the European Respiratory Society (ERS) and the American Thoracic Society (ATS) has has been possible to standardize the formerly different European and Northern American nomenclature of interstitial lung diseases (alveolitis versus…
  • Acute interstitial pneumonia. [Review]
    Clin Chest Med. 2004 Dec; 25(4):739-47, vii.Vourlekis JS
  • The idiopathic interstitial pneumonias have unknown etiology and are characterized by diffuse parenchymal lung involvement and the potential to develop pulmonary fibrosis. Most portend a reduction in life expectancy due, in part, to the absence of effective therapies. The symptoms of idiopathic interstitial pneumonia develop insidiously. In contradistinction, acute interstitial pneumonia (AIP, al…
  • Acute interstitial pneumonitis. Case series and review of the literature. [Case Reports]
    Medicine (Baltimore). 2000 Nov; 79(6):369-78.Vourlekis JS, Brown KK, … Schwarz MI
  • Acute interstitial pneumonitis (AIP) is an acute, idiopathic interstitial lung disease characterized by rapidly progressive diffuse pulmonary infiltrates and hypoxemia requiring hospitalization. The case-fatality ratio is high. Previous reports suggested that survivors of the acute event have a favorable outcome. We undertook this study to examine the natural history of survivors. We had observed…
  • Acute interstitial pneumonia. [Review]
    Eur Respir J. 2000 Feb; 15(2):412-8.Bouros D, Nicholson AC, … du Bois RM
  • The term "acute interstitial pneumonia" (AIP) describes an idiopathic clinicopathological condition, characterized clinically by an interstitial lung disease causing rapid onset of respiratory failure, which is distinguishable from the other more chronic forms of interstitial pneumonia. It is synonymous with Hamman-Rich syndrome, occurring in patients without pre-existing lung disease. The histop…
  • Open lung biopsy in immunocompromised patients. [Journal Article]
    Chest. 1984 Nov; 86(5):671-4.McKenna RJ, Mountain CF, McMurtrey MJ
  • Increased use of open lung biopsy in the search for a treatable etiology of acute interstitial pneumonitis (AIP) in immunocompromised patients is based on the assumption that examination and cultures from biopsy specimens will yield significant information leading to beneficial treatment of the condition. To assess the true impact of the results of open lung biopsy on the subsequent treatment and…
