Definition

Pneumonia, Interstitial;Bronchiolitis Obliterans Organizing Pneumonia (Boop);Chronic Fibrous Pneumonia; Diffuse Alveolar Damage; Fibrous Interstitial Pneumonia; Giant Cell Interstitial Pneumonia; Idiopathic Interstitial Pneumonia;

Usual Interstitial Pneumonia (UIP); Subdivisions: Acute Interstitial Pneumonia (AIP); Cryptogenic Organizing Pneumonia (COP); Desquamative Interstitial Pneumonia (DIP);

Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF); Lymphoid Interstitial Pneumonia (LIP); Nonspecific Interstitial Pneumonia (NSIP);

Respiratory Bronchiolitis-Associated Interstitial Lung Disease (RB-ILD); The abnormal accumulation of inflammatory cells in lung tissue may lead to any one of several disorders with similar signs and symptoms; As white blood cells and protein-rich plasma build up in the air sacs of the lungs (alveoli), inflammation is generated; The inflammatory process, if it lasts long enough, may harden the fluid and the resultant firm, fibrous substance (scarring) may replace the lung tissue;
