Les pneumopathies interstitielles diffuses chroniques: un mariage de raison entre pathologiste, clinicien et radiologue [Diffuse parenchymal lung disease, multidisciplinary approach and role of pathology]
Revue Médicale Suisse
Publication types: Case Reports ; English Abstract ; Journal Article
The diagnostic approach to diffuse parenchymal lung disease (DPLD) and especially to the idiopathic interstitial pneumonias has changed over the last two decades, mostly thanks to the development of high resolution CT. Though far from replacing pathology, this additional tool has contributed to the definition of new and more precise diagnostic criteria especially for idiopathic interstitial pneumonias, integrating data provided by the three main contributors: lung specialist, radiologist and pathologist. The purpose of this article is to review the role of histopathology in the multidisciplinary approach of the diagnosis of DPLD and idiopathic interstitial pneumonias.
