The American Thoracic Society/European Respiratory Society Statement on Update of the International Multidisciplinary Classification of the Idiopathic Interstitial Pneumonias
2013 was used in the diagnosis and classification of ILD.
UIP/IPF is the most common fibrosing idiopathic interstitial pneumonia
, and that diagnosis comprises the emphasis of most studies.

International multidisciplinary consensus classification of the idiopathic interstitial pneumonias
Pneumocyte biomarkers KL-6 and surfactant protein D reflect the distinct findings of high-resolution computed tomography in nonspecific interstitial pneumonia
reported that serum levels of SP-A, but not those of SP-D and KL-6, were significantly elevated in patients with IPF compared to patients with nonspecific interstitial pneumonia
Sjogren syndrome being a multisystem autoimmune disease can affect the entire respiratory tract, with manifestations ranging from obstructive small airway disease, xerotrachea and bronchial sicca, lung cysts, pulmonary amyloidosis, pulmonary hypertension, lymphoinfiltrative or lymphoproliferative lung disease, and pleural involvement to various patterns of interstitial lung disease (ILD) like nonspecific interstitial pneumonia
(NSIP) or usual interstitial pneumonia
Subpleural septal thickening with a predominant apicobasal gradientwaslabeled as usual interstitial pneumonia
The histopathology of ILD in PM-DM have shown several patterns, including bronchiolitis obliterans with organizing pneumonia, diffuse alveolar damage (DAD), nonspecific interstitial pneumonia
(NSIP), and usual interstitial pneumonia
Although there is lymphocytic infiltration in the bronchial epithelium, excessive alveolar septal infiltration which is observed in lymphocytic interstitial pneumonia
is not observed.
Chest films often will reveal interstitial edema that might be misinterpreted as interstitial pneumonia
, in keeping with the child's recent viral illness.
Nitrofurantoin-induced granulomatous Interstitial Pneumonia
ELISA-VIDITEST and IF-VIDITEST anti-HHV-6 kits are intended for serological diagnosis of diseases associated with HHV-6 infection, such as exanthema subitum, acute respiratory illnesses, diarrhoea with fever and febrile seizures in infants, heterophile antibody-negative infectious mononucleosis in children, also interstitial pneumonia
, encephalitis, meningitis, hepatitis, and aplastic anemia in immunodeficient patients.
The main histopathologic diagnoses included acute protozoal necrotizing interstitial pneumonia
, splenitis, and hepatitis.
