BACKGROUND Airway-centered Interstitial Fibrosis (ACIF) is a common pathologic pattern observed in our practice. OBJECTIVES The objectives of this study are to describe the causes associated with ACIF in a large sample of patients and its effect on survival. METHODS A retrospective study in three centers of interstitial lung disease in São Paulo,(More)
Hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HSP) is a common interstitial lung disease resulting from inhalation of a large variety of antigens by susceptible individuals. The disease is best classified as acute and chronic. Chronic HSP can be fibrosing or not. Fibrotic HSP has a large differential diagnosis and has a worse prognosis. The most common etiologies for HSP(More)
The predictive value of the decline in FVC by ≥10% on survival in patients with fibrotic hypersensitivity pneumonitis is unknown. Of 112 patients included, 66 (59%) had surgical lung biopsies. Patients with ≥10% decline in predicted FVC after 6-12 months had a significantly increased risk of all-cause mortality (median survival 53 months, 95% CI 37 to 69 vs(More)
