Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD)

by Jeremy Brown, PhD, MRCP(UK), MBBS

Interstitial lung disease (ILD) describes a group of lung disorders that share clinical, radiographic, physiologic or pathologic factors, though each represents distinct and unique entities. The underlying pathology of ILD involves fibrosis secondary to inflammation. Despite what the name suggests, it extends beyond disrupting the interstitial bed and changes the parenchyma (alveoli, alveolar ducts, and bronchioles). The list of causes of infiltrative diseases is extensive, and many of them are extremely rare. Patterns of disease spread can vary widely, so establishing an accurate diagnosis is extremely important to guide discussions on treatment and prognosis.
