AIMS Pulmonary fibrosis in acute and chronic lung disease has been much investigated, but little attention has been directed at the elastic tissue in these situations. Our aim was to verify whether elastic deposition accompanies collagen deposition in the repairing process of acute and chronic lung injury. METHODS AND RESULTS We measured, by image analysis, the content of fibres of the collagenous and elastic systems of the alveolar septum in histological slides sampled from autopsied lungs… CONTINUE READING
