Non Infectious Cavitary Exogenous Lipoid Pneumonia: A Case-Based Short Review

Lipoid pneumonia (LP) is due to the accumulation of either endogenous or exogenous lipids in the alveoli. The exogenous LP (ELP) results from the chronic aspiration or inhalation of animal, vegetable, or mineral oils or fatty substances that by reaching the pulmonary alveoli cause a foreign body-type inflammatory reaction of lung parenchyma, associated with fibrosis, necrosis, and possible cavitation. Pulmonary reaction is characterised by symptoms and radiological findings that are common to other pulmonary diseases.
