Lung Diseases, Interstitial: A diverse group of lung diseases that affect the lung parenchyma. They are characterized by an initial inflammation of PULMONARY ALVEOLI that extends to the interstitium and beyond leading to diffuse PULMONARY FIBROSIS. Interstitial lung diseases are classified by their etiology (known or unknown causes), and radiological-pathological features.Lung Diseases: Pathological processes involving any part of the LUNG.Lung: Either of the pair of organs occupying the cavity of the thorax that effect the aeration of the blood.Pulmonary Fibrosis: A process in which normal lung tissues are progressively replaced by FIBROBLASTS and COLLAGEN causing an irreversible loss of the ability to transfer oxygen into the bloodstream via PULMONARY ALVEOLI. Patients show progressive DYSPNEA finally resulting in death.Dermatomyositis: A subacute or chronic inflammatory disease of muscle and skin, marked by proximal muscle weakness and a characteristic skin rash. The illness occurs with approximately equal frequency in children and adults. The skin lesions usually take the form of a purplish rash (or less often an exfoliative dermatitis) involving the nose, cheeks, forehead, upper trunk, and arms. The disease is associated with a complement mediated intramuscular microangiopathy, leading to loss of capillaries, muscle ischemia, muscle-fiber necrosis, and perifascicular atrophy. The childhood form of this disease tends to evolve into a systemic vasculitis. Dermatomyositis may occur in association with malignant neoplasms. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1405-6)Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis: 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.Scleroderma, Systemic: A chronic multi-system disorder of CONNECTIVE TISSUE. It is characterized by SCLEROSIS in the SKIN, the LUNGS, the HEART, the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT, the KIDNEYS, and the MUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM. Other important features include diseased small BLOOD VESSELS and AUTOANTIBODIES. The disorder is named for its most prominent feature (hard skin), and classified into subsets by the extent of skin thickening: LIMITED SCLERODERMA and DIFFUSE SCLERODERMA.Alveolitis, Extrinsic Allergic: A common interstitial lung disease caused by hypersensitivity reactions of PULMONARY ALVEOLI after inhalation of and sensitization to environmental antigens of microbial, animal, or chemical sources. The disease is characterized by lymphocytic alveolitis and granulomatous pneumonitis.Polymyositis: Diseases characterized by inflammation involving multiple muscles. This may occur as an acute or chronic condition associated with medication toxicity (DRUG TOXICITY); CONNECTIVE TISSUE DISEASES; infections; malignant NEOPLASMS; and other disorders. The term polymyositis is frequently used to refer to a specific clinical entity characterized by subacute or slowly progressing symmetrical weakness primarily affecting the proximal limb and trunk muscles. The illness may occur at any age, but is most frequent in the fourth to sixth decade of life. Weakness of pharyngeal and laryngeal muscles, interstitial lung disease, and inflammation of the myocardium may also occur. Muscle biopsy reveals widespread destruction of segments of muscle fibers and an inflammatory cellular response. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1404-9)Respiratory Function Tests: Measurement of the various processes involved in the act of respiration: inspiration, expiration, oxygen and carbon dioxide exchange, lung volume and compliance, etc.Bronchoalveolar Lavage Fluid: Washing liquid obtained from irrigation of the lung, including the BRONCHI and the PULMONARY ALVEOLI. It is generally used to assess biochemical, inflammatory, or infection status of the lung.Sarcoidosis, Pulmonary: Sarcoidosis affecting predominantly the lungs, the site most frequently involved and most commonly causing morbidity and mortality in sarcoidosis. Pulmonary sarcoidosis is characterized by sharply circumscribed granulomas in the alveolar, bronchial, and vascular walls, composed of tightly packed cells derived from the mononuclear phagocyte system. The clinical symptoms when present are dyspnea upon exertion, nonproductive cough, and wheezing. (Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p431)Pulmonary Surfactant-Associated Protein C: A pulmonary surfactant associated protein that plays a role in alveolar stability by lowering the surface tension at the air-liquid interface. It is a membrane-bound protein that constitutes 1-2% of the pulmonary surfactant mass. Pulmonary surfactant-associated protein C is one of the most hydrophobic peptides yet isolated and contains an alpha-helical domain with a central poly-valine segment that binds to phospholipid bilayers.Connective Tissue Diseases: A heterogeneous group of disorders, some hereditary, others acquired, characterized by abnormal structure or function of one or more of the elements of connective tissue, i.e., collagen, elastin, or the mucopolysaccharides.Lung Diseases, Obstructive: Any disorder marked by obstruction of conducting airways of the lung. AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION may be acute, chronic, intermittent, or persistent.Lung Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of the LUNG.Tomography, X-Ray Computed: Tomography using x-ray transmission and a computer algorithm to reconstruct the image.Histidine-tRNA Ligase: An enzyme that activates histidine with its specific transfer RNA. EC 6.1.1.21.Collagen Diseases: Historically, a heterogeneous group of acute and chronic diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, progressive systemic sclerosis, dermatomyositis, etc. This classification was based on the notion that "collagen" was equivalent to "connective tissue", but with the present recognition of the different types of collagen and the aggregates derived from them as distinct entities, the term "collagen diseases" now pertains exclusively to those inherited conditions in which the primary defect is at the gene level and affects collagen biosynthesis, post-translational modification, or extracellular processing directly. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1494)Sarcoidosis: An idiopathic systemic inflammatory granulomatous disorder comprised of epithelioid and multinucleated giant cells with little necrosis. It usually invades the lungs with fibrosis and may also involve lymph nodes, skin, liver, spleen, eyes, phalangeal bones, and parotid glands.Bronchoalveolar Lavage: Washing out of the lungs with saline or mucolytic agents for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. It is very useful in the diagnosis of diffuse pulmonary infiltrates in immunosuppressed patients.Pulmonary Diffusing Capacity: The amount of a gas taken up, by the pulmonary capillary blood from the alveolar gas, per minute per unit of average pressure of the gradient of the gas across the BLOOD-AIR BARRIER.Myositis: Inflammation of a muscle or muscle tissue.Vital Capacity: The volume of air that is exhaled by a maximal expiration following a maximal inspiration.Lung Transplantation: The transference of either one or both of the lungs from one human or animal to another.Radiography, Thoracic: X-ray visualization of the chest and organs of the thoracic cavity. It is not restricted to visualization of the lungs.Pulmonary Alveoli: Small polyhedral outpouchings along the walls of the alveolar sacs, alveolar ducts and terminal bronchioles through the walls of which gas exchange between alveolar air and pulmonary capillary blood takes place.Dyspnea: Difficult or labored breathing.Total Lung Capacity: The volume of air contained in the lungs at the end of a maximal inspiration. It is the equivalent to each of the following sums: VITAL CAPACITY plus RESIDUAL VOLUME; INSPIRATORY CAPACITY plus FUNCTIONAL RESIDUAL CAPACITY; TIDAL VOLUME plus INSPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME plus functional residual capacity; or tidal volume plus inspiratory reserve volume plus EXPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME plus residual volume.Pulmonary Surfactant-Associated Protein B: A pulmonary surfactant associated-protein that plays an essential role in alveolar stability by lowering the surface tension at the air-liquid interface. Inherited deficiency of pulmonary surfactant-associated protein B is one cause of RESPIRATORY DISTRESS SYNDROME, NEWBORN.Biopsy: Removal and pathologic examination of specimens in the form of small pieces of tissue from the living body.Idiopathic Interstitial Pneumonias: A group of interstitial lung diseases with no known etiology. There are several entities with varying patterns of inflammation and fibrosis. They are classified by their distinct clinical-radiological-pathological features and prognosis. They include IDIOPATHIC PULMONARY FIBROSIS; CRYPTOGENIC ORGANIZING PNEUMONIA; and others.Retrospective Studies: Studies used to test etiologic hypotheses in which inferences about an exposure to putative causal factors are derived from data relating to characteristics of persons under study or to events or experiences in their past. The essential feature is that some of the persons under study have the disease or outcome of interest and their characteristics are compared with those of unaffected persons.Carcinoma, Non-Small-Cell Lung: A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.Lung Injury: Damage to any compartment of the lung caused by physical, chemical, or biological agents which characteristically elicit inflammatory reaction. These inflammatory reactions can either be acute and dominated by NEUTROPHILS, or chronic and dominated by LYMPHOCYTES and MACROPHAGES.Bronchiolitis: Inflammation of the BRONCHIOLES.Lung Volume Measurements: Measurement of the amount of air that the lungs may contain at various points in the respiratory cycle.Mediastinal Emphysema: Presence of air in the mediastinal tissues due to leakage of air from the tracheobronchial tree, usually as a result of trauma.Spirometry: Measurement of volume of air inhaled or exhaled by the lung.Autoantibodies: Antibodies that react with self-antigens (AUTOANTIGENS) of the organism that produced them.Cryptogenic Organizing Pneumonia: An interstitial lung disease of unknown etiology, occurring between 21-80 years of age. It is characterized by a dramatic onset of a "pneumonia-like" illness with cough, fever, malaise, fatigue, and weight loss. Pathological features include prominent interstitial inflammation without collagen fibrosis, diffuse fibroblastic foci, and no microscopic honeycomb change. There is excessive proliferation of granulation tissue within small airways and alveolar ducts.Severity of Illness Index: Levels within a diagnostic group which are established by various measurement criteria applied to the seriousness of a patient's disorder.Smoking: Inhaling and exhaling the smoke of burning TOBACCO.Hypertension, Pulmonary: Increased VASCULAR RESISTANCE in the PULMONARY CIRCULATION, usually secondary to HEART DISEASES or LUNG DISEASES.Disease Progression: The worsening of a disease over time. This concept is most often used for chronic and incurable diseases where the stage of the disease is an important determinant of therapy and prognosis.Chronic Disease: Diseases which have one or more of the following characteristics: they are permanent, leave residual disability, are caused by nonreversible pathological alteration, require special training of the patient for rehabilitation, or may be expected to require a long period of supervision, observation, or care. (Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)Forced Expiratory Volume: Measure of the maximum amount of air that can be expelled in a given number of seconds during a FORCED VITAL CAPACITY determination . It is usually given as FEV followed by a subscript indicating the number of seconds over which the measurement is made, although it is sometimes given as a percentage of forced vital capacity.Pneumonia: Infection of the lung often accompanied by inflammation.Pulmonary Disease, Chronic Obstructive: A disease of chronic diffuse irreversible airflow obstruction. Subcategories of COPD include CHRONIC BRONCHITIS and PULMONARY EMPHYSEMA.Biological Markers: Measurable and quantifiable biological parameters (e.g., specific enzyme concentration, specific hormone concentration, specific gene phenotype distribution in a population, presence of biological substances) which serve as indices for health- and physiology-related assessments, such as disease risk, psychiatric disorders, environmental exposure and its effects, disease diagnosis, metabolic processes, substance abuse, pregnancy, cell line development, epidemiologic studies, etc.Mixed Connective Tissue Disease: A syndrome with overlapping clinical features of systemic lupus erythematosus, scleroderma, polymyositis, and Raynaud's phenomenon. The disease is differentially characterized by high serum titers of antibodies to ribonuclease-sensitive extractable (saline soluble) nuclear antigen and a "speckled" epidermal nuclear staining pattern on direct immunofluorescence.Bronchoscopy: Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the bronchi.Macrophages, Alveolar: Round, granular, mononuclear phagocytes found in the alveoli of the lungs. They ingest small inhaled particles resulting in degradation and presentation of the antigen to immunocompetent cells.Bronchiolitis Obliterans: Inflammation of the BRONCHIOLES leading to an obstructive lung disease. Bronchioles are characterized by fibrous granulation tissue with bronchial exudates in the lumens. Clinical features include a nonproductive cough and DYSPNEA.Cystic Fibrosis: An autosomal recessive genetic disease of the EXOCRINE GLANDS. It is caused by mutations in the gene encoding the CYSTIC FIBROSIS TRANSMEMBRANE CONDUCTANCE REGULATOR expressed in several organs including the LUNG, the PANCREAS, the BILIARY SYSTEM, and the SWEAT GLANDS. Cystic fibrosis is characterized by epithelial secretory dysfunction associated with ductal obstruction resulting in AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION; chronic RESPIRATORY INFECTIONS; PANCREATIC INSUFFICIENCY; maldigestion; salt depletion; and HEAT PROSTRATION.Histiocytosis, Langerhans-Cell: A group of disorders resulting from the abnormal proliferation of and tissue infiltration by LANGERHANS CELLS which can be detected by their characteristic Birbeck granules (X bodies), or by monoclonal antibody staining for their surface CD1 ANTIGENS. Langerhans-cell granulomatosis can involve a single organ, or can be a systemic disorder.Lactate Dehydrogenases: Alcohol oxidoreductases with substrate specificity for LACTIC ACID.Pneumoconiosis: A diffuse parenchymal lung disease caused by inhalation of dust and by tissue reaction to their presence. These inorganic, organic, particulate, or vaporized matters usually are inhaled by workers in their occupational environment, leading to the various forms (ASBESTOSIS; BYSSINOSIS; and others). Similar air pollution can also have deleterious effects on the general population.Prognosis: A prediction of the probable outcome of a disease based on a individual's condition and the usual course of the disease as seen in similar situations.Scleroderma, Diffuse: A rapid onset form of SYSTEMIC SCLERODERMA with progressive widespread SKIN thickening over the arms, the legs and the trunk, resulting in stiffness and disability.Hermanski-Pudlak Syndrome: Syndrome characterized by the triad of oculocutaneous albinism (ALBINISM, OCULOCUTANEOUS); PLATELET STORAGE POOL DEFICIENCY; and lysosomal accumulation of ceroid lipofuscin.Treatment Outcome: Evaluation undertaken to assess the results or consequences of management and procedures used in combating disease in order to determine the efficacy, effectiveness, safety, and practicability of these interventions in individual cases or series.QuinazolinesMucin-1: Carbohydrate antigen elevated in patients with tumors of the breast, ovary, lung, and prostate as well as other disorders. The mucin is expressed normally by most glandular epithelia but shows particularly increased expression in the breast at lactation and in malignancy. It is thus an established serum marker for breast cancer.Asbestosis: A form of pneumoconiosis caused by inhalation of asbestos fibers which elicit potent inflammatory responses in the parenchyma of the lung. The disease is characterized by interstitial fibrosis of the lung, varying from scattered sites to extensive scarring of the alveolar interstitium.Mycoplasmatales: An order of highly pleomorphic, gram-negative bacteria including both pathogenic and saprophytic species.Pulmonary Gas Exchange: The exchange of OXYGEN and CARBON DIOXIDE between alveolar air and pulmonary capillary blood that occurs across the BLOOD-AIR BARRIER.Pulmonary Emphysema: Enlargement of air spaces distal to the TERMINAL BRONCHIOLES where gas-exchange normally takes place. This is usually due to destruction of the alveolar wall. Pulmonary emphysema can be classified by the location and distribution of the lesions.Acute Lung Injury: A condition of lung damage that is characterized by bilateral pulmonary infiltrates (PULMONARY EDEMA) rich in NEUTROPHILS, and in the absence of clinical HEART FAILURE. This can represent a spectrum of pulmonary lesions, endothelial and epithelial, due to numerous factors (physical, chemical, or biological).Pulmonary Eosinophilia: A condition characterized by infiltration of the lung with EOSINOPHILS due to inflammation or other disease processes. Major eosinophilic lung diseases are the eosinophilic pneumonias caused by infections, allergens, or toxic agents.Bleomycin: A complex of related glycopeptide antibiotics from Streptomyces verticillus consisting of bleomycin A2 and B2. It inhibits DNA metabolism and is used as an antineoplastic, especially for solid tumors.Meningeal Carcinomatosis: Primary or secondary neoplasm in the ARACHNOID or SUBARACHNOID SPACE. It appears as a diffuse fibrotic thickening of the MENINGES associated with variable degrees of inflammation.Immunosuppressive Agents: Agents that suppress immune function by one of several mechanisms of action. Classical cytotoxic immunosuppressants act by inhibiting DNA synthesis. Others may act through activation of T-CELLS or by inhibiting the activation of HELPER CELLS. While immunosuppression has been brought about in the past primarily to prevent rejection of transplanted organs, new applications involving mediation of the effects of INTERLEUKINS and other CYTOKINES are emerging.Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis: A PULMONARY ALVEOLI-filling disease, characterized by dense phospholipoproteinaceous deposits in the alveoli, cough, and DYSPNEA. This disease is often related to, congenital or acquired, impaired processing of PULMONARY SURFACTANTS by alveolar macrophages, a process dependent on GRANULOCYTE-MACROPHAGE COLONY-STIMULATING FACTOR.Farmer's Lung: A form of alveolitis or pneumonitis due to an acquired hypersensitivity to inhaled antigens associated with farm environment. Antigens in the farm dust are commonly from bacteria actinomycetes (SACCHAROPOLYSPORA and THERMOACTINOMYCES), fungi, and animal proteins in the soil, straw, crops, pelts, serum, and excreta.Pulmonary Surfactants: Substances and drugs that lower the SURFACE TENSION of the mucoid layer lining the PULMONARY ALVEOLI.Pulmonary Surfactant-Associated Protein D: An abundant pulmonary surfactant-associated protein that binds to a variety of lung pathogens and enhances their opsinization and killing by phagocytic cells. Surfactant protein D contains a N-terminal collagen-like domain and a C-terminal lectin domain that are characteristic of members of the collectin family of proteins.Birt-Hogg-Dube Syndrome: Autosomal dominant neoplastic syndrome characterised by genodermatosis, lung cysts, spontaneous and recurrent PNEUMOTHORAX; and RENAL CANCER. It is associated with mutations in the folliculin protein gene (FLCN protein).Pulmonary Medicine: A subspecialty of internal medicine concerned with the study of the RESPIRATORY SYSTEM. It is especially concerned with diagnosis and treatment of diseases and defects of the lungs and bronchial tree.Respiratory Insufficiency: Failure to adequately provide oxygen to cells of the body and to remove excess carbon dioxide from them. (Stedman, 25th ed)Anti-Inflammatory Agents: Substances that reduce or suppress INFLAMMATION.Case-Control Studies: Studies which start with the identification of persons with a disease of interest and a control (comparison, referent) group without the disease. The relationship of an attribute to the disease is examined by comparing diseased and non-diseased persons with regard to the frequency or levels of the attribute in each group.Cystitis, Interstitial: A condition with recurring discomfort or pain in the URINARY BLADDER and the surrounding pelvic region without an identifiable disease. Severity of pain in interstitial cystitis varies greatly and often is accompanied by increased urination frequency and urgency.Fatal Outcome: Death resulting from the presence of a disease in an individual, as shown by a single case report or a limited number of patients. This should be differentiated from DEATH, the physiological cessation of life and from MORTALITY, an epidemiological or statistical concept.Bronchi: The larger air passages of the lungs arising from the terminal bifurcation of the TRACHEA. They include the largest two primary bronchi which branch out into secondary bronchi, and tertiary bronchi which extend into BRONCHIOLES and PULMONARY ALVEOLI.Thoracic Surgery, Video-Assisted: Endoscopic surgery of the pleural cavity performed with visualization via video transmission.Lymphangioleiomyomatosis: A disease characterized by the progressive invasion of SMOOTH MUSCLE CELLS into the LYMPHATIC VESSELS, and the BLOOD VESSELS. The majority of the cases occur in the LUNGS of women of child-bearing age, eventually blocking the flow of air, blood, and lymph. The common symptom is shortness of breath (DYSPNEA).Pleural DiseasesPrednisolone: A glucocorticoid with the general properties of the corticosteroids. It is the drug of choice for all conditions in which routine systemic corticosteroid therapy is indicated, except adrenal deficiency states.Arthritis, Rheumatoid: A chronic systemic disease, primarily of the joints, marked by inflammatory changes in the synovial membranes and articular structures, widespread fibrinoid degeneration of the collagen fibers in mesenchymal tissues, and by atrophy and rarefaction of bony structures. Etiology is unknown, but autoimmune mechanisms have been implicated.Technetium Tc 99m Pentetate: A technetium imaging agent used in renal scintigraphy, computed tomography, lung ventilation imaging, gastrointestinal scintigraphy, and many other procedures which employ radionuclide imaging agents.New MexicoInterstitial Cells of Cajal: c-Kit positive cells related to SMOOTH MUSCLE CELLS that are intercalated between the autonomic nerves and the effector smooth muscle cells of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT. Different phenotypic classes play roles as pacemakers, mediators of neural inputs, and mechanosensors.Antibodies, Antinuclear: Autoantibodies directed against various nuclear antigens including DNA, RNA, histones, acidic nuclear proteins, or complexes of these molecular elements. Antinuclear antibodies are found in systemic autoimmune diseases including systemic lupus erythematosus, Sjogren's syndrome, scleroderma, polymyositis, and mixed connective tissue disease.Sensitivity and Specificity: Binary classification measures to assess test results. Sensitivity or recall rate is the proportion of true positives. Specificity is the probability of correctly determining the absence of a condition. (From Last, Dictionary of Epidemiology, 2d ed)Hydroxychloroquine: A chemotherapeutic agent that acts against erythrocytic forms of malarial parasites. Hydroxychloroquine appears to concentrate in food vacuoles of affected protozoa. It inhibits plasmodial heme polymerase. (From Gilman et al., Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 9th ed, p970)Esophageal pH Monitoring: Analysis of the HYDROGEN ION CONCENTRATION in the lumen of the ESOPHAGUS. It is used to record the pattern, frequency, and duration of GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX.Oxygen: An element with atomic symbol O, atomic number 8, and atomic weight [15.99903; 15.99977]. It is the most abundant element on earth and essential for respiration.JapanRadiographic Image Interpretation, Computer-Assisted: Computer systems or networks designed to provide radiographic interpretive information.Risk Factors: An aspect of personal behavior or lifestyle, environmental exposure, or inborn or inherited characteristic, which, on the basis of epidemiologic evidence, is known to be associated with a health-related condition considered important to prevent.Follow-Up Studies: Studies in which individuals or populations are followed to assess the outcome of exposures, procedures, or effects of a characteristic, e.g., occurrence of disease.Bird Fancier's Lung: A form of alveolitis or pneumonitis due to an acquired hypersensitivity to inhaled avian antigens, usually proteins in the dust of bird feathers and droppings.Cyclophosphamide: Precursor of an alkylating nitrogen mustard antineoplastic and immunosuppressive agent that must be activated in the LIVER to form the active aldophosphamide. It has been used in the treatment of LYMPHOMA and LEUKEMIA. Its side effect, ALOPECIA, has been used for defleecing sheep. Cyclophosphamide may also cause sterility, birth defects, mutations, and cancer.Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia: A chronic lung disease developed after OXYGEN INHALATION THERAPY or mechanical ventilation (VENTILATION, MECHANICAL) usually occurring in certain premature infants (INFANT, PREMATURE) or newborn infants with respiratory distress syndrome (RESPIRATORY DISTRESS SYNDROME, NEWBORN). Histologically, it is characterized by the unusual abnormalities of the bronchioles, such as METAPLASIA, decrease in alveolar number, and formation of CYSTS.Antirheumatic Agents: Drugs that are used to treat RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS.Oximetry: The determination of oxygen-hemoglobin saturation of blood either by withdrawing a sample and passing it through a classical photoelectric oximeter or by electrodes attached to some translucent part of the body like finger, earlobe, or skin fold. It includes non-invasive oxygen monitoring by pulse oximetry.Adrenal Cortex Hormones

Introduction. Lymphocytic interstitial pneumonia (LIP) is regarded as a preneoplastic disease that results from inflammatory pulmonary reaction to various external stimuli or systemic disease.1 LIP is characterized by a diffuse lymphocytic infiltrate with lymphoid hyperplasia around the enlarging airways. This may range from small benign lymphoid aggregates to high degree lymphoma in 5% of cases.1-3 Death results in approximately 33% to 50% of patients in nearly five years after the diagnosis.2. Acute cor pulmonale is a clinical syndrome characterized by signs of right heart failure (right ventricular hypertrophy) of sudden onset and results from the abrupt increase of pulmonary vascular resistance due to diseases that affect the function and/or the structure of the lung, of which pulmonary embolism is the most common cause.4. In Brazil, despite the availability of antiretroviral drugs in the public health ...
Thirteen patients with lymphocytic interstitial pneumonitis were seen at the Mayo Clinic from 1966 through 1976. The group included nine women and four men, with a mean age of 50.7 years. Their primary complaints were cough, dyspnea, and loss of weight. Chest roentgenographic features were predominantly basilar, coarse interstitial-alveolar infiltrations. Pulmonary function studies showed restrictive ventilatory impairments with a low CO diffusing capacity in all 13 patients. Lung biopsies in all cases showed diffuse interstitial infiltrations, consisting of mature lymphocytes and plasma cells. Ten of the 13 patients had an associated dysproteinemia, including two patients with hypogammaglobulinemia. Three patients had coexistent Sjögrens syndrome, including two with localized amyloidosis. Although lymphocytic interstitial pneumonitis is a histologically distinct pulmonary lesion, it occurs with a variety of ...
A subset of patients with common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) develops granulomatous and lymphocytic interstitial lung disease (GLILD), a restrictive lung disease associated with early mortality.

Recent reports suggest that minor overt hemoptysis may accompany sequestration of large amounts of iron in the lung leading to hypochromic anemia in patients with idiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosis. Linear profile scanning was used to quantify intrapulmonary hemorrhage in such a patient, a 44-year-old menopausal housewife with dyspnea and hemoptysis. A diagnosis of idiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosis was confirmed by streaks of blood and hemosiderin-laden macrophages in the sputum, intense hemosiderosis in a lung biopsy specimen, iron deficiency anemia, and ephemeral pulmonary infiltrates on chest X ray. The patient was in remission during hospitalization. After discharge, hemoptysis and dyspnea recurred, and studies ...

The conceptual study of connective tissue diseases as one of causative factors in Interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) : both modern and ayurveda perspective ;patients with ILDs come with the onset of progressive exertional dyspnea or a persistent nonproductive cough. Hemoptysis , wheezing and chest pain may be present. Often , the identification of interstitial opacities on chest X-ray focuses the diagnostic approach on one of the ILDs. Rheumatoid arthritis is one of connective and autoimmune diseases which cause ILDs.. inflammation in the air space and alveolar walls and interstitial fibrosis are present due to autoimmunity.. the presence of jts pain , stiffness and deformity like swan neck etc with +ve antinuclear antibodies and anti- immunoglobulin antibodies ( RA factors ) confirm the diagnosis , however these tests are +ve even in absence of defined connective tissue ...
Bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) has been crucial in elucidating the immune effector cells involved in the inflammatory processes in idiopathic interstitial pneumonias 1. Despite its value as a research tool, the diagnostic usefulness of BAL in idiopathic interstitial pneumonias is limited. An increase in neutrophils and/or eosinophils and/or lymphocytes may be seen. The idiopathic interstitial pneumonia with the worst prognosis is idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) showing a histological pattern of usual interstitial pneumonia (UIP) 2. In IPF, historical data suggests that certain changes in BAL cell differentials may have prognostic importance; in some studies, patients with increased percentages of neutrophils or eosinophils (or both) had a worse prognosis, whereas BAL lymphocytosis has been associated with a greater responsiveness to corticosteroid therapy 3-6.. The most detailed data in that context have been published by Watters et al. 4. ...
Differential diagnosis of multiple lung cysts on HRCT: Lymphangioleiomyomatosis, emphysema (cysts and walls usually less well-defined), chronic interstitial lung diseases (honeycombed cysts usually peripheral), Langerhans cell histiocytosis (nodules ± cavities, presence of thicker-walled cysts, upper lung predominance), bronchiectasis (tree-and-bud pattern often present), sarcoidosis (cysts usually apical), and pneumatoceles (commonly seen with pneumocystis pneumonia) Histologic differential diagnosis: Lymphangioleiomyomatosis; emphysema (if smooth muscle nodules not recognized); smooth muscle proliferations such as "benign" metastasizing leiomyoma, metastatic stromal sarcoma of the uterus, and metaplastic muscle bundles in fibrosing lung diseases; and alveolar hemorrhage syndromes (if hemosiderin deposits frequent) ...
This multidisciplinary concensus was adopted in 2001 by both the American Thoracic Society (ATS) and the European Respiratory Society (ERS) in order to standardize classification of the idiopathic interstitial pneumonias.
Restrictive lung disease is a broad term encompassing a number of conditions in which lung volumes are reduced. Dyspnea is a common clinical manifestation of restrictive lung disease and frequently becomes a prominent and disabling symptom that undermines patients ability to function and engage in activities of daily living (especially in those with more advanced restriction). Effective management of this disabling symptom awaits a better understanding of its underlying physiology. In recent decades, our understanding of the mechanisms of dyspnea in restrictive lung disease has been improved by a small, but significant, body of research. One approach to the study of dyspnea is to identify the major qualitative dimensions of the symptom in an attempt to uncover different underlying neurophysiologic mechanisms. This article ...
We explored the potential of EIAV to induce pulmonary lesions in naturally infected equids from 79 EIAV-seropositive horses collected in Romania and France. We scored three types of lesions on paraffin-embedded sections: lymphocyte infiltration, (peri)bronchiolar inflammation, and thickness of the alveolar septa and analyzed the expression of the p26 EIAV capsid protein. Compared to EIAV-negative horses, over 80% of the EIAV-positive animals displayed lesions of interstitial lung disease, with an histological score above 0.4 varying from from mild inflammation around the bronchioles, to moderate inflammation with inflammatory cells inside the walls and epithelial bronchiolar hyperplasia or severe inflammation with destruction of the bronchiolar epithelium and accumulation of smooth muscle cells within the lung parenchyma. The lesions were often localized sub-pleurally concomitantly with metaplasia of the ...
A 51-year-old woman presented with complaints of dyspnea, fatigue, and non-productive cough. Chest X-ray showed bilateral lung infiltrates. Nonspecific air-space consolidation on anterior segment of the right lower lobe, bilateral bronchiectasis and infiltrates, patchy ground-glass opacities, and interstitial thickening were reported on thorax computed tomography which was non-responsive to antibiotics. After tru-cut biopsy which only revealed a single granuloma in a particular area, alveolar septal thickening and fibrosis, slight chronic inflammation with findings of congestion, lung involvement was considered to be associated with nonspecific interstitial pneumonia. The nails on all fingers displayed yellow discoloration with mild edema in the face and the legs. The final diagnosis was yellow nail syndrome. Short-term clarithromycin and long-term oral methylprednisolone with vitamin E treatment were ...

Results All 126 patients were Caucasian, 75% women. At the time of the cross-sectional ILD study, the patients had a mean disease duration of 9.0 years. 52% of the patients had abnormal HRCT findings, most commonly reticular patterns consistent with lung fibrosis (35%). Lung fibrosis was quantified as minor in 7%, moderate in 9% and severe in 19% of the patients. Fibrosis was uniformly concentrated in the lower parts of the lungs and was not associated with smoking. Patients with severe lung fibrosis had lower PFT values, shorter 6MWT and a higher mean NYHA functional class. After a mean 4.2 years follow-up, overall mortality was 7.9%. Mortality in patients with normal HRCT was 3.3%, as compared with 20.8% in patients with severe lung fibrosis (p,0.01).. ...
It is chronic decline in lungs function. Pulmonary Fibrosis means scarring of lungs tissues & is a cause of worsening dyspnoea (shortness of breathing).. Fibrosis is having poor prognosis.. Cause of IPF is unknown.. It mostly occurs in patients in between 50 to 70 years. It mostly occurs with history of cigarette smoking. It occurs more in men than women. In IPF(Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis)more than 200 types of diseases are seen.. ILD (Interstitial Lung Diseases): In ILD the tissue between the air sacks in the lungs is primary sight of injury.. The interstitium, the air spores peripheral air ways & vessels are damaged in ILD.. Histopathology pattern- Usual interstitial Pneumonia (UIP).. *UIP is pathologic counterpart of IPF..

ABSTRACTIn recent years, antisynthetase syndrome has been recognized as an important cause of autoimmune inflammatory myopathy in a subset of patients with polymyositis and dermatomyositis. It is associated with serum antibodies to aminoacyl-transfer RNA synthetases and is characterized by a constellation of manifestations, including fever, myositis, interstitial lung disease,
Surfactant protein C (SP-C), is one of the pulmonary surfactant proteins. In humans this is encoded by the SFTPC gene. It is a membrane protein which manufactures surfactant. The propeptide of pulmonary surfactant C has an N-terminal alpha-helical segment whose suggested function was stabilization of the protein structure, since the latter can irreversibly transform from its native alpha-helical structure to beta-sheet aggregates and form amyloid fibrils. The correct intracellular trafficking of proSP-C has also been reported to depend on the propeptide. It is associated with surfactant metabolism dysfunction type 2. Humans and animals born lacking SP-C tend to develop progressive interstitial lung disease. Keller A, Eistetter HR, Voss T, Schafer KP (Aug 1991).

Familial Pulmonary Fibrosis (FPF) is a sub-category of the idiopathic interstitial pneumonias (IIPs). IIPs are progressive lung conditions, with limited treatment options and unknown etiology. Though the IIPs have been associated with both genetic risk factors and environmental exposures, the molecular mechanism underlying disease progression remain poorly understood. This investigation seeks to identify a group of genetic loci that play a role in the development of familial interstitial pneumonia (FIP) or FPF, where 2 or more cases of IIP are seen within a family ...
Primary central nervous system lymphoma(PCNSL) is a rare kind of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Rituximab combined with high-dose methotrexate, cytarabine and dexamethasone (R-MAD regimen) were reported effective for PCNSL patients. Rituximab can cause several side effects, including fever, chills and rigors. In this case report, we demonstrate rituximab-induced interstitial pneumonitis in a PCNSL patient who has been treated with R-MAD regimen. The patient recovered after treatment and she remains complete remission after following consolidation chemotherapy. Here is no report of potential fatal complications of Rituximab like interstitial pneumonitis nowadays in PCNSL patients. As Rituximab is widely used, physicians should raise their awareness of this rare complication and detect RTX-ILD in early stage.
Subcutaneous oedema as a presenting feature of polymyositis/dermatomyositis: a poor prognostic indicator? - Grand Rounds Subcutaneous oedema as a presenting feature of polymyositis/dermatomyositis: a poor prognostic indicator? - Widespread subcutaneous oedema is a rare presenting feature of polymyositis (PM)/dermatomyositis (DM). It was reported in the initial description of the disease by Wagner in 1877 but only nine cases have since been reported in the literature and it is not listed in standard textbooks of rheumatology. We present a further case of subcutaneous oedema as a presenting feature of dermatomyositis, briefly review the existing literature and postulate that this presentation represents a subset of the disease with a poorer prognosis.
Amyloidosis is the extracellular deposition of insoluble amyloid fibrilprotein in any tissue or organ.[1] The most common subtypes of the disease are AL amyloidosis and AA reactive amyloidosis.[1] AL amyloidosis is a systemic disease caused by immunoglobulin light chain fragments, while AA amyloidosis is a potential complication of recurrent inflammation leading to the production of serum amyloid A, an acute phase reactant.[2] Pulmonary amyloidosis is a localized form of amyloid deposition that is confined to the lung parenchyma.[

INTRODUCTION: Inhomogeneity of lung attenuation pattern is observed in high resolution chest computed tomography (HRCT) in some IPAH patients despite lack of interstitial lung disease. Such radiological changes are described either as ill-defined centrilobular nodules (CN) or as focal ground glass opacities (FGGO). There is no consensus in the literature, whether they indicate the distinct type of IPAH, or pulmonary venoocclusive disease (PVOD) with subtle radiological changes. Thus the aim of the present pilot study was to assess the frequency and clinical significance of inhomogenic lung attenuation pattern in IPAH.. MATERIAL AND METHODS: 52 IPAH patients (38 females, 14 males, mean age 41 years ± 15 years), entered the study. All available chest CT scans were reviewed retrospectively by the experienced radiologist, not aware about the clinical data of the ...

The overall goal of this application is to develop a compelling rationale and workable methodology for the treatment of diffuse alveolar damage with transplanted human epithelial stem/progenitor cells capable of long term engraftment and improved organ function. Stem/progenitor replacement therapy is envisioned as a meaningful therapeutic adjunct in several clinical situations dominated by diffuse alveolar damage with epithelial loss: severe, acute lung injury, e.g. due to influenza or other causes of ARDS, as well as acute exacerbations of chronic fibrotic lung disease. Recent studies discussed in the application indicate effective alveolar regeneration, and thus improved lung function, requires both a first phase of expansion and migration of stem/progenitor cells to re-establish alveolar barriers followed by a second phase of differentiation of new barrier cells into mature type II ...

Background: We sought to determine if KL-6 is a useful biomarker in differentiating neuroendocrine cell hyperplasia of infancy (NEHI), a benign form of childrens interstitial lung disease, from the more severe inborn errors of surfactant metabolism (IESM), since their clinical presentation can be similar.. Methods: Serum KL-6 levels were measured in 10 healthy control children, 6 with NEHI and 13 with IESM (4 with surfactant protein C and 9 with ABCA3 mutations). The initial clinical presentation, findings on previous CT scans, and ILD scores at the time of KL-6 testing were compared. Correlations between KL-6 levels with age and with interval from lung biopsy were evaluated.. Results: The median (range) KL-6 levels were 265 (1-409), 194 (47-352), 1149 (593-4407) and 3068 (726-9912) for the control, NEHI, SP-C and ABCA3 groups, respectively. When compared to the control and NEHI groups, median KL-6 levels ...

Nephrotoxicity due to drugs especially beta lactams and cephalosporins has been well recognised. Cefepime is a fourth-generation cephalosporin that is widely prescribed with few severe adverse reactions reported. Although cefepime induced neurotoxicity has frequently been reported, there is yet no reported case of acute interstitial nephritis caused by this drug. We report a biopsy proven case of acute kidney injury due to acute interstitial nephritis associated with use of cefepime for treatment of mastoiditis and temporal bone osteomyelitis. A 62-year-old Caucasian female presented with symptoms of right sided mastoiditis. A brain Magnetic Resonance Imaging scan revealed presence of right sided mastoiditis with concurrent temporal bone osteomyelitis. Microbiological specimen isolated an Escherichia coli. Therapy was commenced with intravenous cefepime. After 4 weeks of therapy with intravenous cefepime she developed acute kidney injury. No other medications were taken by ...
Francisco Andrade, PhD, Program Director. The progression of cardiopulmonary disease and the efficacy of therapeutic interventions are critically dependent on the response of cardiac, smooth, and skeletal muscles in the cardiovascular and pulmonary systems. All three muscle types are essential for normal cardiopulmonary function, all three play key roles in cardiovascular and pulmonary disease, and all are targets for therapeutic development. Our program targets this area of biomedicine by training predoctoral and medical students for muscle research in the context of cardiopulmonary disease. The University of Kentucky (UK) is ideally suited for the program. UK is a public research institution with 33,692 undergraduate and graduate students, 1,920 faculty members, extramural research support of $290 million in 2006, and a medical center comprising six different health-related Colleges. A recently-adopted strategic plan calls for rapid growth of UK research ...
This monograph will provide information about Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF). IPF is a rare, but deadly lung disorder that can be difficult to recognize and diagnose. A type of interstitial lung disease (ILD), IPF is characterized by insidious onset, nonspecific symptoms of cough and dyspnea, and a progressive decline in lung function caused by fibrosis of the lung parenchyma. The prognosis of IPF is poor. The estimated median survival is 3.8 years from diagnosis, and the only intervention so far shown to improve survival is lung transplantation.1,2 Furthermore, the diagnosis of IPF is often missed or delayed. The gradual onset and nonspecific symptoms of IPF may be inadequately investigated or confused with more common diseases, leaving patients untreated or inappropriately treated. ...
Acute diffuse lung infiltration in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) requires prompt evaluation for diffuse alveolar hemorrhage (DAH) when patients have low levels of hemoglobin and complement compound C4 and symptoms of hypoxia. The development of DAH was significantly associated with the presence of these features, South Korean researchers have found. (Citation Source http://buff.ly/2uSPVK7). In their retrospective series of 47 SLE patients with acute diffuse lung infiltration, about half satisfied criteria for DAH, and although mortality was no different between patients with or without DAH (29.2% versus 21.7%), more than 80% of the patients with DAH who died did so within 3 weeks.. Because of this risk of early death, "we consider that early detection of diffuse lung infiltration and early suspicion of DAH will be key factors in improving the prognosis of DAH in SLE patients," wrote Dam ...
Due to the special growth and developmental characteristics of newborn infants, VILI is thought to play an important role in the pathogenesis of neonatal chronic lung disease, which has an adverse effect on the survival rate and the quality of life for newborns with ALI/ARDS. To study newborn ALI/ARDS, newborn animals, such as piglets,5,6 rats,7 and rabbits,8 have been used as animal models. Because the organ development, lung volume, and birth weight of newborn piglets resemble those of newborn infants, the current study used induced ALI/ARDS in newborn piglets.. One of the aims in this study was to compare the histopathological features of the lung damage in gravitation-dependent and gravitation-nondependent regions. Compared to the gravitation-nondependent region, the gravitation-dependent region displayed increased lung swelling and hemorrhaging, and ...
Discussion. This is the first multicenter registry of inflammatory myopathies in the Community of Madrid, and it provides the most extensive compilation of data up to now. The registry was created for the purpose of retrospectively analyzing the clinical characteristics, comorbidities and complications of autoimmune inflammatory myopathies in a multicenter study of 12 hospitals in the Community of Madrid. We compared the clinical characteristics, analytical findings and prognosis in the different subgroups of autoimmune inflammatory myopathies.. The criteria of Tanimoto,9 published in 1995, have a greater specificity than those of Bohan and Peter.18,19 The only 2 cases that did not meet the criteria of Bohan and Peter, did conform to Tanimotos criteria, and corresponded to 2 patients with antisynthetase syndrome with elevated muscle enzymes, arthritis, general symptoms and interstitial lung disease in both cases, and mechanics hands in one.. ...

Surfactant metabolism dysfunction is a condition where pulmonary surfactant is insufficient for adequate respiration. Most disease-causing mutations in SFTPB result in a complete lack of mature SP-B protein 265120. Lung disease is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner, requiring mutations in both alleles. Surfactant produced by infants with SP-B deficiency is abnormal in composition and does not function normally in lowering surface tension. Familial cases of SP-C dysfunction 610913 are inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern, although the onset and severity of lung disease are highly variable, even within the same family. Mutations in ABCA3 appear to be the most common cause of genetic surfactant dysfunction in humans. The mutations result in a loss of or reduced function of the ABCA3 protein, and are inherited in an autosomal recessive manner 610921. Congenital hypothyroidism ...
en] A 37-year-old man with acute myeloblastic leukemia in first remission developed ulcerative colitis and bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia (BOOP) 7 months after bone marrow transplantation (BMT) from an HLA-matched brother who suffered from severe Crohns disease. BOOP occurred 20 days after idiopathic interstitial pneumonia, in the context of severe ulcerative colitis. Lung and colon biopsies showed no signs of CMV infection or GVHD. The patient was treated with oral methylprednisolone 1 mg/kg/day and his clinical status and chest X-ray improved slowly. Remarkably, the symptoms of colitis also resolved with prednisone therapy and he is now symptom-free. We hypothesize that ulcerative colitis may have been transmitted from donor to recipient (adoptive autoimmunity) and that it was complicated by BOOP. However, other factors such as CMV may have contributed to the occurrence of BOOP ...

Also called Spontaneous pneumothorax, is a collection of air or gas in the chest that causes the lung to collapse. Spontaneous means there is no traumatic injury to the chest or lung. Causes, incidence, and risk factors There are two types of spontaneous pneumothorax: Primary spontaneous pneumothorax Secondary spontaneous pneumothorax Primary spontaneous pneumothorax occurs in people without lung disease. It usually occurs in tall, thin men between the ages of 20 and 40. Usually, the rupture of a small air- or fluid-filled sac in the lung (called a bulla) causes a primary spontaneous pneumothorax. Secondary spontaneous pneumothorax most often occurs with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Other lung diseases commonly associated with spontaneous pneumothorax include: Tuberculosis ...
Results Twenty cases presented decreased peak VO2. VE/VCO2 ratio, which represent increased ventilation-perfusion mismatch, elevated in 12 cases. 8 cases, with decreased peak VO2 but normal VE/VCO2, were regarded that muscle weakness mainly induced exertion dyspnea, and advised exercise. Twelve cases with decreased peak VO2 and elevated VE/VCO2 were estimated to have APAH or/and interstitial lung disease (ILD). Seven of them underwent RHC and 1 case diagnosed as definite APAH, and another 1 case as post capillary PH.. A 34 years MCTD woman without ILD showed an active capillaroscopic pattern, her peak VO2 decreased (13.9ml/kg/min.) and nadir VE/VCO2 elevated (39). Although her mean PAP was normal, we suspected she had early PV and administered PDE5 inhibitor to her and her dyspnea had gone soon and CPET parameters improved.. CPET was also useful for early detections of therapeutic gains in APAH. A SSc woman, diagnosed as APAH by RHC, was ...

Jo 1 (histidyl tRNA synthetase) is a member of the amino acyl-tRNA synthetase family of enzymes found in all nucleated cells. Jo 1 antibodies in patients with polymyositis bind to conformational epitopes of the enzyme protein and inhibit its catalytic activity in vitro.(1). Jo 1 antibodies are a marker for the disease polymyositis, and occur most commonly in myositis patients who also have interstitial lung disease. The antibodies occur in up to 50% of patients with interstitial pulmonary fibrosis and symmetrical polyarthritis.(2). See Connective Tissue Disease Cascade (CTDC) in Special Instructions.. ...

This is the first longitudinal assessment of CT-detected structural lung disease in young children with CF detected by newborn screening. The observations provide a unique insight to the early development of CF lung disease and factors associated with the persistence and progression of structural changes. We found that neutrophilic inflammation and pulmonary infection were independently associated with progression of bronchiectasis, with neutrophilic inflammation associated with progression of air trapping. Importantly, neutrophilic inflammation at the initial scan was associated with subsequent progression of structural lung disease and might therefore be an early predictor of significant future lung disease. These findings are in agreement with earlier cross-sectional studies that implicated neutrophilic ...

BACKGROUND: Ultra-filtration failure is a serious complication of long-term continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). This complication is related to histological changes of the peritoneum, i.e. severe interstitial fibrosis and microvascular sclerosis. Although their pathogenesis has not been elucidated yet, advanced glycation end products (AGEs) have been shown to accumulate in the peritoneal tissue of CAPD patients. METHODS: Peritoneal biopsy specimens from 14 CAPD patients with low ultra-filtration (n = 9) and high ultra-filtration (n = 5) capacity were immunohistochemically investigated using a monoclonal antibody against AGEs (6D12). The severity of peritoneal fibrosis, microvascular sclerosis and intensity of AGE accumulation were semi-quantitatively evaluated. Peritoneal ultra-filtration capacity was evaluated by calculating daily ultrafiltration volume per body weight (UFV/BW) and D/D0 (glucose) of the peritoneal equilibration test. RESULTS: In all patients with low ...

CLIFFORD, J. [¶1] Rosemary Fecteau, widow of Jack Fecteau, appeals from the judgment entered in the Superior Court (Kennebec County, Calkins, J.) affirming the State Employee Health Commissions determination that costs incurred for the removal of her late husbands amalgam fillings were not covered by his employee insurance with Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Maine (Blue Cross). Fecteau contends that the commission erred in its determination that coverage did not exist for the removal of the fillings. We affirm the judgment. [¶2] Jack Fecteau was employed by the Maine Department of Human Services and participated in the State Employees Health Insurance Program. Pursuant to 5 M.R.S.A. § 285 (1989 & Supp. 1996), Blue Cross contracted with the Commission to provide group medical coverage to State employees. Jack was diagnosed with interstitial lung disease. In 1994, he was advised by Dietrich K. Klinghardt, M.D., that a contributing cause of his ...
Etiology and pathogenesis Top. Classification of acute interstitial nephritis (AIN) based on etiology: 1) Drug-induced AIN (the most common cause of AIN): a) Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs): Most frequently fenoprofen, phenylbutazone, ibuprofen, indomethacin, naproxen, piroxicam, cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors. b) Antibiotics: Ampicillin, methicillin, penicillin, rifampicin, sulfonamides, vancomycin, ciprofloxacin, erythromycin, tetracycline. c) Other drugs: Proton pump inhibitors, cimetidine, allopurinol, interferon, antiviral drugs, 5-aminosalicylic acid.. 2) Infection-induced AIN: a) Primary renal infections: Acute bacterial pyelonephritis (see Uncomplicated Acute Pyelonephritis), renal tuberculosis, fungal nephritis. b) Systemic infections: Bacterial (Legionella spp, Brucella spp, Salmonella spp, Streptococcus spp), viral (Epstein-Barr virus, cytomegalovirus, hantavirus, adenoviruses), fungi (histoplasmosis, coccidioidomycosis), or other etiology (mycoplasma, ...
We investigated the feasibility of using an online registry to provide prevalence data for multiple orphan lung diseases in Australia and New Zealand. A web-based registry, The Australasian Registry Network of Orphan Lung Diseases (ARNOLD) was developed based on the existing British Paediatric Orphan Lung Disease Registry. All adult and paediatric respiratory physicians who were members of the Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand in Australia and New Zealand were sent regular emails between July 2009 and June 2014 requesting information on patients they had seen with any of 30 rare lung diseases. Prevalence rates were calculated using population statistics. Emails were sent to 649 Australian respiratory physicians and 65 in New Zealand. 231 (32.4 %) physicians responded to emails a total of 1554 ...
article{65821d8d-a0ec-488b-9cea-da943297d169, abstract = {A single intradermal injection of the mineral oil pristane in susceptible DA.1F rats induces erosive arthritis closely mimicking rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Pristane-induced arthritis (PIA) is driven by autoreactive T cells but no autoantigen has been identified to date. We therefore analyzed B and T cell responses to autoantigens potentially involved in the pathogenesis of RA, including IgG, citrullinated proteins, stress proteins, glucose-6-phosphate isomerase, and heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein (hnRNP)-A2 (RA33). IgG and lgM autoantibodies to hnRNP-A2 were detectable in sera of pristane-primed DA.1F rats already 1 wk before disease onset, reached maximum levels during the acute phase, and correlated with arthritis severity. Apart from rheumatoid factor, autoantibodies to other Ags were not observed. CD4(+) lymph node cells isolated 10 days after pristane injection produced IFN-gamma but not IL-4 in response to stimulation ...
Background: The occurrence of diffuse alveolar hemorrhage (DAH) after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) is rare but severe. There are few reports that have examined the correlation between pre-HSCT chemotherapeutic exposure and DAH. Objectives: We examine the role of pre-HSCT chemotherapeutic exposure, conditioning regimens, pre-HSCT comorbidities and transplant-related complications in the development of DAH after allo-HSCT and evaluate the effect of the high-dose corticosteroid strategy on DAH. Methods: A retrospective nested case-control study was designed. Cases with DAH and controls matched for year of allo-HSCT and length of follow-up were identified from a cohort of 597 patients who underwent allo-HSCT between 2006 and 2011 for acute leukemia. Results: Twenty-two patients suffered from DAH; the mean age at the time of presentation was 30.4 years (+/- 12.9) and the mean time to presentation was 7.8 months (+/- 8.1) post-HSCT. The pre-HSCT cyclophosphamide ...
The coexistence of interstitial pulmonary fibrosis and alveolar cell carcinoma is well known. The familial occurrence of a combination of these two entities, however, is very rare. We present a family of which five members had diffuse interstitial pulmonary fibrosis. Three of them had in addition alveolar cell carcinoma. In a sixth family member, evidence of alveolar cell carcinoma was present without proven interstitial fibrosis. An autosomal dominant trait is suggested as the mode of inheritance of both interstitial fibrosis and alveolar cell carcinoma in this family.. ...
Pulmonary fibrosis is an extra-articular manifestation of rheumatoid arthritis whose etiology remains uncertain. Although the clinical course of many individuals with this disorder can mimic that observed in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, the natural history of fibrotic lung disease associated with rheumatoid arthritis remains largely undefined. It is the intent of this clinical protocol to (1) estimate the prevalence of pulmonary fibrosis in individuals with rheumatoid arthritis, (2) define the natural history of pulmonary fibrosis in patients with rheumatoid arthritis, (3) estimate the survival rate of individuals with pulmonary fibrosis and rheumatoid arthritis, and (4) examine pulmonary physiologic, radiologic, and biochemical markers that predict the development or progression of fibrotic lung disease ...

Pulmonary veno-occlusive disease is a rare subcategory of pulmonary arterial hypertension (WHO Group 1). The disease is poorly understood and difficult to diagnose; it has no definitive cure to date. These patients present with nonspecific symptoms, including dyspnea, exercise intolerance, and weakness. Chest x-rays sometimes differ from idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension and may demonstrate alveolar infiltrates and pleural effusions. High resolution computed tomography scans reveal ground glass opacities, interlobular septal thickening, and lymphadenopathy. Echocardiography can estimate the level of pulmonary artery pressures; right heart catheterization is needed for complete hemodynamic characterization of these patients. Lung biopsies demonstrate remodeling of the venules and small veins with intimal and adventitial fibrosis. This can result in total venous occlusion and subsequent recanalization. Similar changes occur in the ...
The management of melanoma is complex and is dependent on the staging at the initial diagnosis. For patients with intermediate to thick CM, SLNB is the standard nodal staging procedure. SLNB is very accurate in predicting the status of the remaining regional lymph nodes,7,12-14 and is currently the most significant independent prognostic indicator for survival when compared with all other factors, including tumour thickness and the presence of ulceration.7,15-17 The importance of SLNB in the management of melanoma is reflected in the most recent AJCC staging system.8 World Health Organisation representatives have recently stated that SLNB is the standard of care in the management of patients with melanoma and is fundamental to further directives in surgery and adjuvant treatment strategies.15 Several studies, including the multicentre selective lymphadenectomy trial,14 will help to answer the question of whether or not SLNB offers any survival advantage in these patients.. The current standard ...
Results: There were a total of 801 specimens, of which 716 were females and 85 were males. Maximum number of thyroid lesions were seen in the age group 41-50 yrs. Multinodular goiter was the most common non-neoplastic thyroid lesion (71.5%) followed by thyroiditis. There were 151 carcinomas (18.8%). Maximum numbers of carcinomas were seen in age group 31-40 (28.8%).The frequency of carcinomas among the total thyroid lesions was almost same for both males and females (18.82% and 18.85%). Papillary carcinoma was the most frequent malignancy, out of which half were of the micro papillary subtype ...
Aim: To analyze the prevalence and possible associated factors with the Sleep Apnea - Hypopnea Syndrome (SAHS) among patients evaluated for Lung Transplantation (LT). Methods: Transversal descriptive study of a cohort of patients evaluated for LT, with a standard polysomnography (PSG), from September 2008 to February 2012. SAHS was defined as the presence of Apnea Hypopnea Index (AHI) ≥ 10 and excessive daytime sleepiness symptoms. Severity of these symptoms was evaluated by Epworth sleepiness scale. Anthropometric, clinical and blood test measurements were also analyzed in all patients. Results: During this period a number of 52 patients were studied, 50% of them were man, average age was 54,8 years (SD ± 9.96). Principal LT indication pathologies were due to COPD (46.2%), Pulmonary Idiopathic Fibrosis (15.4%) and Usual Interstitial Pneumonitis (11.5%). PSG were performed with supplementary oxygen in 96.2% of the cases. AHI average was 8,26 (SD±1.4). SAHS ...

Dermatomyositis (DM) is inflammatory myopathy or myositis characterised by muscle weakness and skin manifestations. In the differential diagnosis of DM, the evaluation of the muscle biopsy is of importance among other parameters. Perifascicular atrophy in the muscle biopsy is considered a hallmark of DM. However, perifascicular atrophy is not observed in all patients with DM and, conversely, perifascicular atrophy can be observed in other myositis such as antisynthetase syndrome (ASS), complicating DM diagnosis. Retinoic acid inducible-gene I (RIG-I), a receptor of innate immunity that promotes type I interferon, was observed in perifascicular areas in DM. This study compared the value of RIG-I expression with perifascicular atrophy as a biomarker of DM in 115 coded muscle biopsies: 44 patients with DM, 18 with myositis with overlap, 8 with ASS, 27 with non-DM inflammatory myopathy (16 with polymyositis, 6 with inclusion body myositis, 5 with immune-mediated necrotizing myopathy), 8 with ...

Pulmonary hypertension (PH) may be observed in many different conditions, including advanced heart or lung disease [1]. PH is defined as elevation of the mean pulmonary arterial pressure (mPAP) ≥25 mmHg, measured by right heart catheterization (RHC). Since procedure-related risks and costs are not negligible, RHC is not routinely performed in patients with advanced lung disease during initial assessment and follow-up. Echocardiography is commonly used as screening tool for the presence of PH, but might be of limited diagnostic value, in particular in patients with lung disease [2]. Empirical formulas were proposed to calculate the mPAP starting from systolic pulmonary arterial pressure (sPAP) as assessed by echocardiography [3, 4]. It has been suggested that both the Chemla formula (mPAP = sPAP × 0.61 + 2 mmHg) and the Syyed formula (mPAP = sPAP × 0.65 + ...

Association between pulmonary disease and IgA nephropathy (IgAN) has been previously reported. However, no association has been reported between hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP) and IgAN. Here, we report about a patient with no particular medical history, who experienced worsening dyspnoea in the course of 1 month, with ground-glass opacity on chest CT and no improvement after antibiotic therapy. The patient was diagnosed as having HP based on the history of antigen exposure, detection of Trichosporon asahii-specific antibodies and bronchoscopy findings. Concomitantly, findings of renal biopsy revealed the IgAN diagnosis. The patient underwent corticosteroid therapy, with good outcomes for both HP and IgAN. This is the first report in the literature to describe summer-type HP complicated with IgAN. ...
