Abstract

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a distinct clinicopathologic entity with characteristic physical findings, radiographic changes, and physiologic abnormalities. The histopathology of IPF is now understood to represent a spectrum of inflammatory changes that may have prognostic significance. In spite of significant advances in the understanding of the pathogenesis of IPF, there is still much controversy regarding assessment of disease activity and therapy. Within the context of these controversies, a therapeutic paradigm is suggested.
