BACKGROUND Hard metal lung disease has various pathological patterns including giant cell interstitial pneumonia (GIP) and usual interstitial pneumonia (UIP). Although the UIP pattern is considered the prominent feature in advanced disease, it is unknown whether GIP finally progresses to the UIP pattern. OBJECTIVES To clarify clinical, pathological and elemental differences between the GIP and UIP patterns in hard metal lung disease. METHODS A cross-sectional study of patients from 17… CONTINUE READING
