Lymphocytic Interstitial Pneumonia: Thin-Section CT

Lymphocytic Interstitial Pneumonia (LIP) is an uncommon disease, characterized by infiltration of the interstitium and alveolar spaces of the lung by lymphocytes, plasma cells and other lymphoreticular elements. The cause of LIP is still unknown but it could be also a manifestation of CTD Lymphoid Interstitial Pneumonia (Lymphocytic Interstitial Pneumonia) Etiology, Prevalence, and Epidemiology LIP is a rare condition limited to the lungs and characterized at histology by diffuse infiltration of the alveolar septa by polyclonal lymphocytes In 1969, Leibow and Carrinton first described lymphoid interstitial pneumonia (LIP) as interstitial lung disease with diffuse and dense lymphocytic infiltration (Simon: Frontiers of Pulmonary Radiology, 1st Edition, 1969 Lymphocytic interstitial pneumonia is a common sequela of pediatric HIV infection and consists of peribronchial and interstitial lymphoplasmacytic infiltrates accompanied by hyperplasia of bronchial lymphoid tissue.

The pattern in hypersensitivity pneumonitis differs from lymphocytic interstitial pneumonia in that the lymphoid infiltrates are less prominent, there is a peribronchiolar distribution, and poorly formed granulomas and organising intraluminal fibrosis are often present.22 The cellular pattern of non-specific interstitial pneumonia consists of a. Lymphocytic interstitial pneumonia (LIP) is a benign lymphoproliferative disorder characterized by pulmonary infiltration of lymphocytes and plasma cells. It most commonly occurs in patients with Sjögren syndrome and acquired immune deficiency syndrome but can also occur in various other diseases ( 1 - 4 ) The primary imaging findings of lymphocytic interstitial pneumonia (LIP) are bilateral regions of ground-glass opacity [1, 2]. These are most often diffuse, but may be patchy in distribution. Most patients will also have poorly defined centrilobular nodules. Thickening of interlobular septa and bronchovascular bundles is present in 80% of patients Lymphocytic interstitial pneumonia (LIP) is a type of idiopathic interstitial pneumonia (IIP) originally classified by Liebow et al. . LIP is classified as a rare IIP by the current international classification and is defined morphologically as diffuse high density lymphocyte infiltration in the lung alveolar septum [ 2 ]

LCH occurs most frequently in young adults [].Peribronchiolar infiltration of Langerhans and inflammatory cells results in bronchiolo-centric stellate interstitial nodules [].The nodules may subsequently cavitate and form thick- and thin-walled cysts thought to. The aim of the present study was to assess the evolution of various computed tomographic (CT) findings of lymphocytic interstitial pneumonia (LIP) with determination of potentially reversible or irreversible features.The study included 14 patients with biopsy-proved LIP who had serial thin-section CT examination 4 to 82 months (median 13 months) apart

  3. Lymphocytic interstitial pneumonia (LIP), one of the rarest forms of interstitial lung disease (ILD), shares manifestations with a variety of other diseases, making it difficult to diagnose.

  5. Lymphocytic interstitial pneumonia is at present a pathologic diagnosis.

Our study was designed to correlate the degree of parenchymal affection in idiopathic interstitial pneumonia using visual and semi-quantitative HRCT assessment with pulmonary function test results. The study involved 50 patients diagnosed as idiopathic interstitial pneumonia. They were referred from a chest outpatient clinic to the Radiology Department in the Faculty of Medicine, Cairo. Interstitial lung disease (ILD), or diffuse parenchymal lung disease (DPLD), is a group of respiratory diseases affecting the interstitium (the tissue and space around the alveoli (air sacs)) of the lungs. It concerns alveolar epithelium, pulmonary capillary endothelium, basement membrane, and perivascular and perilymphatic tissues. It may occur when an injury to the lungs triggers an abnormal.
