What is Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF)?
Pulmonary Fibrosis is the progressive scarring of the lungs that occurs when air sacs known as alveoli gradually become replaced by fibrotic tissue or scar tissue. As the scar tissue becomes thicker, it leads to stiffness in the lungs, making it difficult to breathe. Pulmonary fibrosis is found in over 200 lung disorders, so it is important for your health care provider to identify the cause of the fibrosis, because different types of fibrosis respond to different treatments.
