    • Interstitial lung diseases
    • Pathology of ILD
    • Pulmonary fibrosis
    • Signs and investigation
    • Clinical recognition and CT scans
    • Invasive tests and treatment
    • Hypersensitivity pneumonitis
    • Pneumoconiosis
    • Sarcoidosis
    • Manifestations of extrapulmonary sarcoid
    • Sarcoidosis - histological confirmation

    Included Quiz Questions

    1. Interstitial lung disease are characterised by non-infecive infiltrations of the interstitium and alveoli.
    2. Interstitial lung disease usually do not affect the transfer factor.
    3. Interstitial lung disease can usually be diagnosed accurately using a chest X ray.
    4. Interstitial lung diseases usually cause obstructive defects in spirometry.

    Fantastic. Hungry for more detail
    By Hamed S. on 02. March 2017 for ILD: Interstitial Lung Disease

    Hi Lecturio team great talk on ILD. But it would have been good to discuss the pneumoconiosis in some more detail. Particularly how to best differentiate one from another a side from hx. chest -xray of silicosis showing an egg appearance. How severity of asbestosis depends on the nature of the fibers eg sereptine can have a less severe pathogenesis.
