Interstitial lung disease

Interstitial lung disease (ILD), also known as diffuse parenchymal lung disease (DPLD), refers to a group of lung diseases affecting the interstitium (the tissue and space around the air sacs of the lungs). It concerns alveolar epithelium, pulmonary capillary endothelium, basement membrane, perivascular and perilymphatic tissues.

The term ILD is used to distinguish these diseases from obstructive airways diseases.

Most types of ILD involve fibrosis, but this is not essential. The term "pulmonary fibrosis" is no longer considered a synonym. Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is one form of "interstitial lung disease".
