Find all the books, read about the author, and more. Format: Paperback. Difficult to Diagnose Rare Diffuse Lung Disease presents the theoretical basis and practical aspects of differential diagnoses of rare lung diseases with the use of new method of probe-based confocal laser endomicroscopy (alveoscopy) of the distal respiratory region. Each chapter describes signs and symptoms of the disease and its typical and. Interstitial lung diseases represent an expanding field of respiratory medicine and pose important daily challenges for lung physicians. There have been tremendous advances in recent years in the understanding of the genetic basis and pathogenesis of a wide range of interstitial lung diseases. This book aims to highlight current challenges, open questions and international concerns, and to Author: R.M. du Bois, L. Richeldi. Interstitial lung disease (ILD), or diffuse parenchymal lung disease (DPLD), is a group of lung diseases affecting the interstitium (the tissue and space around the alveoli (air sacs of the lungs). It concerns alveolar epithelium, pulmonary capillary endothelium, basement membrane, and perivascular and perilymphatic tissues. It may occur when an injury to the lungs triggers an abnormal healing Specialty: Pulmonology.

The phrase ‘diffuse lung disease’ is often used to designate diseases producing bilateral widespread infiltrates in the lung as assessed radiographically or pathologically [1]. A glance at the contents of Part III of this book shows that the term is used herein in a more literal sense to encompass disorders that affect all regions of the Author: Charles Kuhn. The diffuse lung diseases (DLDs), often collectively referred to as the interstitial lung diseases (ILDs), are a heterogeneous group of disorders that are classified together because of similar.   Diffuse parenchymal lung disease (DPLD) represents a large and heterogeneous group of disorders. Although new insights into the pathogenesis and new techniques such as high-resolution-CT have led to a better understanding of DPLD, clinical management remains a challenge. This volume is designed to become a valuable aid in the diagnosis and management of DPLD. Histopathologic features are discussed for each of the major categories of diffuse lung disease in children, beginning with the genetic, developmental, and alveolar growth disorders common in.

  Interstitial lung disease (ILD), sometimes called diffused parenchymal diseases, describes a heterogeneous collection of distinctive lung disorders classified on the grounds of shared clinical, radiographic, physiologic or pathologic factors. What makes it difficult to understand this group of diseases is the confusing terminology. The pathogenetic sequence in actuality involves a series of Author: Marsha Antoine, Mouna Mlika. The book has a rightful place on the shelf of any practitioner with an interest in DLD."--Respiratory Care, "This book concisely summariezes our current understanding of diffuse lung diseases and will be a valuable guide to physicians in the examination of bilateral diffuse . A large part of the book consists of disease-specific chapters, which discuss granulomatous disorders, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and other entities of idiopathic interstitial pneumonia, the collagen vascular diseases, drug-induced infiltrative lung disease as well as orphan diffuse lung diseases including Langerhans’ cell histiocytosis. Overall, this is a well-written book, which serves both the interested and inexperienced reporter of HRCT. Not only does it act as a useful introduction to diffuse lung disease, but it would be an immensely valuable addition to any CT reporting bench. In addition, the book is entirely relevant to interested thoracic physicians and pathologists.".
