Chronic Interstitial

chronic interstitial lung disease ch28

Does it show a restrictive or obstructive pattern? It can show as either or both.
During the chronic stage what characterizes the general infalmmatory responce? Infiltration of numerous white blood cells and some fibroblasts in the alveolar walls and interstitial spaces.
What are the pathologic changes associated with chronic interstitial lung disease? Fibrotic thickening of the resp. bronchioles, alveolar ducts, and alveoliGranulomasDestruction of the alveoliand adjacent pulmonary capillariesHoneycombing and cavity formationAirway obstruction caused by inflammation and bronchial constriction
What is another name for extrinsic alveolitis? Hypersensitivity pneumonitis.
What is extrinsic allergic alveolitis? Immunologically mediated inflamation of the lungs caused by the inhalation of a variety of offending agents.
What is sarcodosis? Multisystem granulomatous disease of unknown etiology.
What is/are the manifestations of the lung in sacoidosis? Interstitial lung disease, enlargement of the mediastinal lymph nodes, or a combination of both.
How is sarcodosis diagnosed? Usually based on the clinical presentation, followed by confirmation with a chest radiograph and histologic evidence obtaained by biopsy.
What is another name for eosinophilic granuloma? Histiocystosis X
What characterizes eosinophilic granuloma? Numerous small interstitial granulomas scattered throughout the lungs.
Who are more prone to get eosinophilic granuloma? Smokers and ex-smokers between 20 and 40 years of age, and males more than females.
What is another name for pulmanary vasculitides? Granulomatoius vasculitides.
What is pulmonary vasculitides? Consists of a heterogeneous group of pulmonary disorders characterized by inflammation and destruction of the pulmonary vessels.
What characterizes Wegener's granulomatosis? Necrotizing, granulomatous vasculitisFocal and segmental glomerulonephritisVariable degreeof systemic vasculitis of the small veins and arteries.
Wegner's granulomatosis, Churg-Strauss syndrome, and lymphomatoid granulomatosis fall under what category? Pulmonary vasculitides.
What is idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF)? Progressive inflamatory disease with varying degrees of fibrosis.
What will be seen in a severe case of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF)? honeycombing.
What is the etiology of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF)? Unknown
What are the major entities of IPF? Desquamative interstitial pneumonia (DIP) and usual interstitial pneumonia (UIP).
What are the most prominent features of DIP? hyperplasia and desqumation of the alveolar type II cells.
What happens with the alveolar spaces? they get packed with macrophages, and there is an even distribution of the interstial mononuclear infiltrate.
What are the most prominent features of UIP? Interstitial and alveolar thicknig caused by chronic inflammatory cells and fibrosis.
What happens in severe cases of UIP? Fibrotic connective tissue replaces the alveolar walls, the alveolar architecture becomes distorted, and honeycombing develops.
Which has a better prognosis, DIP or UIP? DIP
What causes death in UIP and DIP? Progressive acute vetilatory failure, complicated y pulmonary infection.
What causes drug-induced interstitial lung diease? Chemotherapeutc or cytotoxic agents.
