The irritation may well impact varied components of the lung. irritation of those elements may possibly heal or could lead on to everlasting scarring of the lung tissue. the extent of incapacity individual reviews depends upon the quantity of scarring. medical Atlas of Interstitial Lung Diseaserepresents a whole& accomplished visible illustration of the ailment. it's a real pictorial complement to the various monographs& texts at the subject.

Sample text

Another smoking-related condition, respiratory bronchiolitis (RB), is usually found in asymptomatic smokers and a few ex-smokers. It is unclear whether it is a disease entity or a normal response to smoking. Characteristic histopathological finding in RB-ILD is the accumulation of alveolar macrophages within respiratory bronchioles and surrounding alveoli. Macrophages contain light-brown, finely granular pigmentation due to accumulation of smoke constituents. 1). Typical histopathological features of DIP are diffuse alveolar septal thickening, hyperplasia of type II pneumocytes, and intensive accumulation of macrophages within the alveoli.

2a). 1. Clinical conditions associated with nonspecific interstitial pneumonia (NSIP) histological pattern. 2b). Honeycomb change is uncommon in NSIP (a cardinal feature of UIP). 3). Considerable overlap in HRCT patterns exist between NSIP and UIP. Within limited data, most studies suggest that NSIP is associated with increased lymphocytes and neutrophils in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid. These series noted no difference in the cell profiles between the patients with NSIP and those with UIP, although the predominance of T-suppresor cells is more suggestive of NSIP.

8. Consolidation in a patient with Churg-Strauss syndrome. 9. Honeycombing in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. 10. Uniformly distributed thin-walled delicate cysts in lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM). 1.
