Overview

Removing the guesswork associated with Interstitial Lung Disorders (ILDs) and bronchiolar disorders, Interstitial Pulmonary and Bronchiolar Disorders addresses the issues faced by pulmonologists in treating these disorders. Divided into sections based on the disease type (granulomatous, pneumonias, bronchiolar disorders, vasculitis, and orphan lung disease), each disorder is covered from epidemiological, pathogenic, clinical, and radiographic perspectives.

The only text on the market today that deals with the entire spectrum of ILDs, this handy, one-stop reference includes:


  • a special focus on treatment and the proper use of treatment options, including in depth coverage of the most common and potentially dangerous means of treatment
  • emerging concepts in patient care
  • discussion of lung diseases affecting the survivors of 9/11
