Written and edited by global leaders in this challenging field, Rare and Interstitial Lung Diseases: Clinical Cases and Real-World Discussions brings you up to date with the latest advances in complex or rare lung diseases managed on outpatient or inpatient respiratory or critical care units. Using a unique, case-based approach, a wide variety of cases are presented along with perspectives from a multidisciplinary team of experts who discuss therapeutic choices and rationales. This real-world approach allows the reader to become a virtual attending physician, simulating a realistic clinical reasoning process on the diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of patients with rare and complex lung diseases.

  • Reflects a nuanced, multidisciplinary, evidence-based approach to diagnoses, treatment options, and follow-up criteria for complex and rare pulmonary disorders such as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, interstitial lung disease related to connective tissue diseases, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, sarcoidosis, and pulmonary vascular disease.
  • Each case includes onset of symptoms, diagnostic/therapeutic path, and discussions on the clinical choices made in accordance with evidence-based medical procedures.
  • Describes each clinical and laboratory finding and features 150 images, including plain film, procedural photos, ultrasound images, CT scans, and histopathology specimens.
  • Includes the most recent updates to international guidelines (ATS/ERS/JRS/ALAT) on idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).
  • Covers the progression of pulmonary fibrosis in patients with ILD other than IPF; the role of transbronchial lung cryobiopsy (TBLC) in obtaining a tissue diagnosis in patients with undiagnosed ILD; and the indications of antifibrosant drugs.
  • A practical and interactive resource for pulmonologists, as well as critical care and internal medicine practitioners and fellows, thoracic surgeons, and thoracic radiologists.
  • Enhanced eBook version included with purchase. Your enhanced eBook allows you to access all of the text, figures, and references from the book on a variety of devices. Additional digital ancillary content may publish up to 6 weeks following the publication date.
