Interest in interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) has risen in recent years. A large volume of basic and clinical research has increased our understanding of the pathogenesis of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and non-IPF fibrotic ILDs. The ILD field is now evolving rapidly, with major implications for practical management.

This Monograph provides expert clinical guidance on these difficult diseases, which will be helpful to both respiratory and nonrespiratory physicians alike. The initial chapters consider diagnostic issues, pulmonary function tests and techniques that are currently in development. The book then goes on to cover a variety of pulmonary manifestations of very different disease entities, such as connective tissue diseases, systemic vasculitis and much more.
