  • Diagnosis and Management of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. [Review]
    R I Med J (2013). 2021 Sep 01; 104(7):26-29.Munchel JK, Shea BS
  • Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is the most common of the idiopathic interstitial pneumonias. Its signs and symptoms are relatively non-specific, and patients often present with chronic cough, progressive dyspnea, resting or exertional hypoxemia, and inspiratory crackles on lung auscultation. Definitive diagnosis requires the exclusion of known causes of pulmonary fibrosis and identification …
  • [Efficacy and safety of transbronchial cryobiopsy in the etiologic diagnosis of diffuse lung disease]. [Journal Article]
    Zhonghua Yi Xue Za Zhi. 2017 Dec 12; 97(46):3617-3623.Li YS, Guo SL, … Ding M
  • Objective: To assess the efficacy and safety of transbronchial cryobiopsy (TBCB) for the etiologic evaluation of diffuse lung disease (DLD). Methods: Between December 2015 to April 2017, a total of 38 patients with DLD met the inclusion criteria for TBCB in the First Affiliated Hospital of Chongqing Medical University, and 35 of them consented to undergo the procedure under rigid or flexible bron…
  • Chest CT Signs in Pulmonary Disease: A Pictorial Review. [Review]
    Chest. 2017 06; 151(6):1356-1374.Raju S, Ghosh S, Mehta AC
  • CT scanning of the chest is one of the most important imaging modalities available to a pulmonologist. The advent of high-resolution CT scanning of the chest has led to its increasing use. Although chest radiographs are still useful as an initial test, their utility is limited in the diagnosis of lung diseases that depend on higher resolution images such as interstitial lung diseases and pulmonar…
  • Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis misdiagnosed as sputum-negative pulmonary tuberculosis. [Case Reports]
    Ann Afr Med. 2016 Oct-Dec; 15(4):204-206.Isah MD, Abbas A, … Umar M
  • Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), also known as cryptogenic fibrosing alveolitis, is one of a spectrum of idiopathic interstitial pneumonia. IPF is an increasingly common condition which poses many diagnostic and therapeutic challenges leading to misdiagnosis and mismanagement. We presented a 55-year-old male textile trader who was initially managed as sputum-negative pulmonary tuberculosis be…
  • The diagnostic importance of the bronchoalveolar lavage in lymphocytic alveolitis. [Journal Article]
    J Immunoassay Immunochem. 2017; 38(1):58-66.Mlika M, Kria N, … El Mezni F
  • Multidisciplinary concertation is mandatory in order to assess interstitial pneumonias. The study of the bronchoalveolar lavage helps evoking a diagnosis according to the lavage profile. In lymphocytic alveolitis, immunocytochemistry, or in flux cytometry are necessary in order to identify the different clusters of lymphocytes implicated. Our objective was to evaluate the profile of 31 lymphocyti…
  • Advances in the treatment of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. [Review]
    Expert Opin Emerg Drugs. 2015; 20(4):537-52.Sergew A, Brown KK
  • CONCLUSIONS: From these studies we conclude that the future treatment of IPF will include expanding pharmacological options. Recent studies have identified two agents that appear to slow disease progression and may offer a window into pathogenesis and future drug targets.
  • Bronchoalveolar lavage total cell count in interstitial lung diseases--does it matter? [Journal Article]
    Inflammation. 2012 Jun; 35(3):803-9.Domagała-Kulawik J, Skirecki T, … Chazan R
  • Bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) is a useful technique for differential diagnosis of various interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) and is usually realized by analysis of the differential cell count. This study was conducted to estimate the value of bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) total cell count (TCC) in the diagnosis of ILD. We analyzed 237 BAL samples from patients with ILD: sarcoidosis (SA), idio…
  • Cryptogenic fibrosing alveolitis and lung cancer: the BTS study. [Journal Article]
    Thorax. 2010 Jan; 65(1):70-6.Harris JM, Johnston ID, … Cullinan P
  • CONCLUSIONS: These findings confirm an association between CFA and lung cancer although this relationship may not be causal. The high rate of smoking and evidence that smokers present for medical attention earlier than non-smokers suggest that smoking could be confounding this association.
  • Spectrum of fibrosing diffuse parenchymal lung disease. [Review]
    Mt Sinai J Med. 2009 Feb; 76(1):2-23.Morgenthau AS, Padilla ML
  • The interstitial lung diseases are a heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by inflammation and/or fibrosis of the pulmonary interstitium. In 2002, the American Thoracic Society and the European Respiratory Society revised the classification of interstitial lung diseases and introduced the term diffuse parenchymal lung disease. The idiopathic interstitial pneumonias are a subtype of diffu…
