Pulmonary Fibrosis

Pulmonary fibrosis (or idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis) is a respiratory disease in which the lungs become scarred and stiff, making it difficult to breath. It occurs most frequently in patients between 50-70 years, and among some of the causes for its occurrence include the snuff, the effect of some drugs on the body, acid-gastric reflux, environmental causes and exposure to certain substances toxic. Symptoms vary widely: dyspnoea, cough, fever, decreased body mass, etc., so the diagnosis should clarify its difference from other diseases with similar symptoms. Through a comprehensive examination of the patient (complete analysis, chest X-rays, CT scans and biopsy) based primarily on corticosteroids, cytotoxic and anti-fibrotic, with satisfactory results in most cases treatment is established.
