Rare Pulmonary Diseases

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a prolonged lung disorder considered by thickening, scarring (fibrosis) and stiffening of tissue within the lungs. Affected individuals develop shortness of breath and advanced lung disease. Ultimately, IPF results in life-threatening difficulties such as respiratory failure. Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is a rare, advanced lung disease that mostly affects women. Interstitial lung diseases (ILD) are a set of rare lung conditions that effect chronic breathlessness. The problem typically develops over the age of 50 years, and can affect both men and women, and also children.
