IPF, Distinguishing Among Fibrotic Lung Conditions
Drs. Maryl Kreider, Kevin Flaherty, Jesse Roman, and Kevin Gibson discuss a case of IPF diagnosis in a 57-year-old female, with a focus on utilizing a patient’s occupational exposure, patient history, and evaluation of autoimmune diseases to help in differentiating IPF from other fibrotic lung conditions. This case illustrates the importance of recognizing features that don't look like UIP and then using features of the clinical case to help recognize another process that needs early and aggressive intervention.
