This study aimed to investigate whether there was a difference in outcome related to histologic pattern in cryptogenic fibrosing alveolitis (CFA) and to see whether there were correlations between clinical and radiologic findings and histology. One hundred thirteen lung biopsies from consecutive patients taken for the diagnosis of diffuse lung disease were reviewed and reclassified using the Katzenstein and Myers criteria for interstitial pneumonias.
