Interstitial lung diseases comprise a significant part of any respiratory medicine practice.  This timely second edition of Diffuse Lung Disease is a practical clinically-oriented resource, covering all the major advances in diagnostic techniques and therapies.  Authored by world authorities in the field, this book provides clear and specific recommendations for the management of all forms of interstitial lung diseases. 

This book is divided into two sections.  The first section addresses the general aspects of diagnosis and management, including clinical approach, radiographic approach, physiological changes, and classification.  The second section details each individual form of interstitial lung disease.  Organized in an easy to follow format, each disease specific chapter includes tables outlining diagnostic approach, differential diagnosis, disease monitoring, and treatment.  Illustrative cases, replete with high quality HRCT images, bring an added dimension to this outstanding book.
