Verschakelen JA. Results from high-resolution chest CT scans may be helpful in individuals suspected of having interstitial lung disease. Over-immunosuppression can increase the risk of posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorder PTLDa lymphoma-like condition that responds to reduction in immunosuppression. CBC, complete blood count. Clinical correlation and transbronchial biopsy are often indicated for discerning the diagnosis. Interstitial lung disease: clinical evaluation and keys to an accurate diagnosis.
Drug induced interstitial lung disease. Mathai, M. Morisset J, et al. On the other hand, a patient can be completely asymptomatic but have abnormal imaging. The presence of mediastinal lymphadenopathy on an XRay might signify the presence of lymphoma or sarcoidosis. In ILDs resulting from known exogenous causes, it is crucial to avoid further exposure.
Other risk factors include, most notably, an underlying diagnosis of IPF. Moreover, posttransplant acute exacerbation of IPF is increasingly recognized [ 51 ]. Tomassetti S et al. Breathing in dust or other particles in the air are responsible for some types of interstitial lung diseases. Journal of Thoracic Oncology.

Cottin V. A few case reports describe the safety of pirfenidone use as a bridge to lung transplantation [ 2425 ].
Moreover, explanted lungs are inherently fragile, which further complicates the transplant process. But in any case, prognosis still correlates with the extent of the disease on presentation.
There is varying reports on the safety of sirolimus use in early post-lung transplantation [ 3134 ]. Sarcoidosis, obliterative bronchiolitis OBand connective tissue disorder CTD were also listed diagnostic indications, and so there exists the potential for overlapping and misclassification of the underlying disease leading to lung transplant in a small proportion of cases.
Another abnormality is a decrease in diffusing capacity, a measurement of how well gas passes across the membranes in the lungs. King CS, et al. Higher LAS scores impart a higher likelihood of waitlist mortality and allow for a prognostic stratification within regional transplant waitlists and associated organ allocation preference [ 2 ].
Management strategies include airway dilation with silicone or self-expandable metallic stents, cryoablation, and laser photoresection.
In: Goldman-Cecil Medicine. It starts with a detailed patient history and physical exam coupled with laboratory testing, imaging, physiologic testing and possibly a biopsy.
