Interstitial lung disease is the name for a large group of diseases that inflame or scar the lungs. The inflammation and scarring make it hard to get enough oxygen. The scarring is called pulmonary fibrosis.
Sign and Symptoms of Interstitial lung disease:
The primary signs and symptoms of interstitial lung disease are:
- Shortness of breath, aggravated by exertion
- Dry cough
Types of Interstitial Lung Disease:
All forms of interstitial lung disease cause thickening of the interstitium. The thickening can be due to inflammation, scarring, or extra fluid (edema). Some forms of interstitial lung disease are short-lived; others are chronic and irreversible.
Some of the types of interstitial lung disease include:
Interstitial pneumonia: Bacteria, viruses, or fungi may infect the interstitium of the lung. A bacterium called Mycoplasma pneumonia is the most common cause.
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis : A chronic, progressive form of fibrosis (scarring) of the interstitium. Its cause is unknown.
Nonspecific interstitial pneumonitis: Interstitial lung disease that’s often present with autoimmune conditions (such as rheumatoid arthritis or scleroderma).
Hypersensitivity pneumonitis: Interstitial lung disease caused by ongoing inhalation of dust, mold, or other irritants.
Cryptogenic organizing pneumonia (COP): A pneumonia-like interstitial lung disease but without an infection present. COP is also called bronchiolitis obliterans with organizing pneumonia (BOOP).
Acute interstitial pneumonitis: A sudden, severe interstitial lung disease, often requiring life support.
Desquamative interstitial pneumonitis: An interstitial lung disease that’s partially caused by smoking.
Sarcoidosis: A condition causing interstitial lung disease along with swollen lymph nodes, and sometimes heart, skin, nerve, or eye involvement.
Asbestosis: Interstitial lung disease caused by asbestos exposure.
Causes of Interstitial lung disease:
Bacteria, viruses, and fungi are known to cause interstitial pneumonias. Regular exposures to inhaled irritants at work or during hobbies can also cause some interstitial lung disease. These irritants include:
- Silica dust
- Coal dust, or various other metal dusts from working in mining
- Grain dust from farming
- Bird proteins (such as from exotic birds, chickens, or pigeons)
Drugs such as nitrofurantoin, amiodarone, bleomycin, and many others can rarely cause interstitial lung disease.
All told, these factors cause a small percentage of interstitial lung disease. The cause of most interstitial lung disease is unknown.
Test and Diagnosis for Interstitial lung disease:
Chest X-ray: A simple chest X-ray is the first test in the evaluation of most people with a breathing problem. Chest X-ray films in people with interstitial lung disease may show fine lines in the lungs.
Computed tomography (CT scan): A CT scanner takes multiple X-rays of the chest and a computer creates detailed images of the lungs and surrounding structures. Interstitial lung disease can usually be seen on a CT scan.
High-resolution CT scan: If interstitial lung disease is suspected, using certain CT scanner settings can improve the images of the interstitium. This increases the CT scan’s ability to detect interstitial lung disease.
Pulmonary function testing: A person sits in a sealed plastic booth and breathes through a tube. People with interstitial lung disease may have a reduced total lung capacity. They may also have a decreased ability to transfer oxygen from their lungs into their blood.
Lung biopsy: Often, obtaining lung tissue to examine under a microscope is the only way to determine which type of interstitial lung disease a person has. There are several ways to collect lung tissue, which is called a lung biopsy:
- Bronchoscopy: An endoscope is advanced through the mouth or nose into the airways. Tiny tools on the endoscope can take a sample of lung tissue.
- Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS): Using tools inserted through small incisions, a surgeon can sample multiple areas of lung tissue.
- Open lung biopsy (thoracotomy): In some cases, traditional surgery with a large incision in the chest is needed to obtain a lung biopsy.
Complications of Interstitial lung disease:
Interstitial lung disease can lead to a series of life-threatening complications, including:
- High blood pressure in lungs (pulmonary hypertension). Unlike systemic high blood pressure, this condition affects only the arteries in your lungs. It begins when scar tissue restricts the smallest blood vessels, limiting blood flow in your lungs. This in turn raises pressure within the pulmonary arteries. Pulmonary hypertension is a serious illness that becomes progressively worse.
- Right-sided heart failure (cor pulmonale). This serious condition occurs when your heart’s lower right chamber (right ventricle) — which is less muscular than the left — has to pump harder than usual to move blood through obstructed pulmonary arteries. Eventually the right ventricle fails from the extra strain.
- Respiratory failure. In the end stage of chronic interstitial lung disease, respiratory failure occurs when severely low blood oxygen levels along with rising pressures in the pulmonary arteries and the right ventricle cause heart failure.
Treatments for Interstitial lung disease:
Many people diagnosed with interstitial lung diseases are initially treated with a corticosteroid (prednisone), sometimes in combination with other drugs that suppress the immune system — such as methotrexate or cyclosporine. None of these combinations has proved very effective over the long run.
Using oxygen can’t stop lung damage, but it can:
- Make breathing and exercise easier
- Prevent or lessen complications from low blood oxygen levels
- Reduce blood pressure in the right side of your heart
- Improve your sleep and sense of well-being
The aim of pulmonary rehabilitation is not only to improve daily functioning, but also to help people with intersitial lung disease live full, satisfying lives. To that end, pulmonary rehabilitation programs focus on:
- Physical exercise, to improve your endurance
- Breathing techniques that improve lung efficiency
- Emotional support
- Nutritional counseling
Lung transplantation may be an option of last resort for younger people with severe interstitial lung disease who haven’t benefited from other treatment options.
Common Medicines for Homeopathic Treatment of Interstitial lung disease-
Beryllium is indicated for people where there is formation of granulomas or nodules that form in the lungs and may appear in other bodily systems and organs. Beryllium has been found useful in the treatment of sarcoma in lung cancer. It is indicated for cases when the individual has difficulty breathing and lung pain made worse when she moves. There may also be a deep, dry cough and other respiratory diseases present, such as emphysema.
Silica is indicated in cases of Fibroid development of the lung tissue is characteristic, with thickening and scarring. The individual needing silica may be chilly, wanting to sit by the heater for warmth. He may have an aversion to drafts, have cold hands and feet, have a lack of appetite and experience mental prostration. The remedy may be helpful for relieving sharp pains in the lungs, hemorrhaging in the capillaries and coughing with thick phlegm.
