Interstitial Lung Disease

Interstitial lung disease is a group of disorders that affect the interstitium, a lace-like network of tissue in the lungs that provides support to the lungs’ microscopic air sacs (alveoli). Most forms of interstitial lung disease cause progressive scarring of lung tissue, which eventually affects your ability to breathe and get enough oxygen into your bloodstream. Some forms of interstitial lung disease are short-lived; others are chronic and irreversible.
