A 57-years old, non-smoker, presented with gradually progressive dyspnea in 2017.
The patient presented with a probable UIP pattern, which I have discussed earlier.
He had no connective tissue disease and no other history. What would you do next?
- Treat as UIP/IPF
- Treat as fibrotic NSIP / occult connective tissue disease
To help you, here is the snippet I had done two years ago that helps us make sense of the probable UIP/fibrotic NSIP issue.
The video below discusses this case, why this is probable UIP, what happened and why follow-up matters. Follow-up scans of 2020 and 2022 are shown and discussed. Please click on the Subscribe button below to see the video.
