Immune System Disorders. A. What disorders do we evaluate under the immune system disorders listings? 1. Orphan Lung Diseases: A Clinical Guide to Rare Lung Disease is a practical, informative book written by a team of international authors with much experience in rare pulmonary diseases. Orphan Lung.

      Interstitial lung disease is the name for a group of diseases that affect the lungs, for example, interstitial pneumonitis, black lung, Farmer's lung, mold, grasses, fumes, and autoimmune diseases. The most common symptoms are a dry cough and shortness of breath. Treatment and prognosis depends upon the type of lung disease. Goodpasture syndrome is a rare autoimmune disorder that appears to affect males more frequently than females. Age of onset is usually between 20 but individuals at any age may be affected. Goodpasture syndrome was first identified in Since that time approximately cases have been noted in the medical literature.

    Interstitial lung diseases represent an expanding field of respiratory medicine and pose important daily challenges for lung physicians. There have been tremendous advances in recent years in the understanding of the genetic basis and pathogenesis of a wide range of interstitial lung diseases. This book aims to highlight current challenges, open questions and international concerns, and to Author: R.M. du Bois, L. Richeldi.   For example, interstitial lung disease (or ILD) is a complication of some autoimmune diseases (such as lupus and sclerosis), and is also a risk factor for lung cancer. It involves the infiltration of inflammatory cells into the lungs’ interstitium (the lacy tissue network that supplies support to the lungs.

Autoimmune lung disease cause the lungs to become inflamed and scarred. The scarring will begin to affect a patient’s ability to breathe and get enough oxygen into the bloodstream.

The symptoms of autoimmune lung diseases are shortness of breath at rest and dry cough. Patients with interstitial lung disease (ILD) may have features of an autoimmune disorder that do not meet the diagnostic criteria for connective tissue diseases. We determined the prevalence and characteristics of autoimmune-featured ILD (AIF-ILD) and compared these with those of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and known connective tissue disease-related ILD (CTD-ILD).Cited by:   Since publication of the 4th Edition of The Autoimmune Diseases inthe understanding of the immune mechanisms underlying autoimmunity and autoimmune disease has significantly deepened and broadened.

The Heart in Rheumatic, Autoimmune and Inflammatory Diseases examines the complex mechanisms relating to cardiac diseases from a pathophysiological and clinical point of view. In light of the tremendous amount of cellular, molecular, and genetic information identifying key aspects of autoimmune diseases, it is arguably apparent that the manifestation of autoimmune disease is governed by the acquisition of multiple immune-compromising traits.

Introduction. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic, inflammatory condition that mainly affects joints, in terms of pain, erosion, disability, and reduced survival [1–5].RA may be complicated by several extra-articular manifestations (EAMs) [6–8].The lung is among the most important targets of EAMs; the spectrum of lung involvement in RA includes manifestations such as pleural disease Cited by: DeepDyve is the largest online rental service for scholarly research with thousands of academic publications available at your fingertips.

Orphan lung diseases differ from the more common pulmonary disorders, due to the fact that the respiratory physician will only see a few of them each year or even during their career. However, as a specialist, it is necessary to identify and confirm such a diagnosis in a patient. This Monograph comprehensively covers the most common and/or complex of these orphan lung by: disease, lung-dominant connective tissue disease,and autoimmune featured interstitial lung disease.

The need for a better understanding and standardization of this entity, interstitial lung disease with autoimmune features, and the need for an adequate management protocol for patients resulted in the introduction of a new terminology in Lung diseases are some of the most common medical conditions in the world.

Most cases affect adults between the ages of years.Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is an umbrella term used for a large group of diseases that cause scarring (fibrosis) of the lungs.

The scarring causes stiffness in the lungs which makes it difficult to breathe and get oxygen to the bloodstream.
