Abstract

Interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) are a relatively rare, yet highly morbid group of pulmonary abnormalities. Individual ILDs have heterogeneous natural histories and responses to therapy, underscoring the importance of prompt recognition and accurate diagnosis. In this review, the authors highlight ILDs most likely to be encountered by hospital-based physicians, including idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, chronic hypersensitivity pneumonitis, and ILD associated with connective tissue disease. They then provide guidance on the appropriate steps to assess and manage these patients in a hospital setting.
