Summary of "Distribution of emphysema and fibrosis in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis with coexisting emphysema."

Combined pulmonary fibrosis and emphysema (CPFE) is a syndrome that results from tobacco smoking. Emphysema and fibrosis in CPFE patients have been considered to exist separately, with emphysema in the upper lobes and interstitial pneumonia in the lower lobes. The aim of this study was to examine the intrapulmonary distribution of fibrosis and emphysema in clinically diagnosed patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) having coexisting emphysema.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A group of interstitial lung diseases with no known etiology. There are several entities with varying patterns of inflammation and fibrosis. They are classified by their distinct clinical-radiological-pathological features and prognosis. They include IDIOPATHIC PULMONARY FIBROSIS; CRYPTOGENIC ORGANIZING PNEUMONIA; and others.

A common interstitial lung disease of unknown etiology, usually occurring between 50-70 years of age. Clinically, it is characterized by an insidious onset of breathlessness with exertion and a nonproductive cough, leading to progressive DYSPNEA. Pathological features show scant interstitial inflammation, patchy collagen fibrosis, prominent fibroblast proliferation foci, and microscopic honeycomb change.

Enlargement of air spaces distal to the TERMINAL BRONCHIOLES where gas-exchange normally takes place. This is usually due to destruction of the alveolar wall. Pulmonary emphysema can be classified by the location and distribution of the lesions.

A form of CARDIAC MUSCLE disease in which the ventricular walls are excessively rigid, impeding ventricular filling. It is marked by reduced diastolic volume of either or both ventricles but normal or nearly normal systolic function. It may be idiopathic or associated with other diseases (ENDOMYOCARDIAL FIBROSIS or AMYLOIDOSIS) causing interstitial fibrosis.

Irreversible FIBROSIS of the submucosal tissue of the MOUTH.
