Abstract Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is a chronic interstitial lung disease of unknown cause. In the past years there have been observations of clustering of pulmonary fibrosis in families, indicating the disease can be inherited. The most commonly identified mutations are mutations involving proteins from the telomerase complex and the surfactant system, where the mutations from the surfactant protein system are less identified. We report a rare care of familial IPF in a young female at the a...

Abstract Autoimmune pulmonary alveolar proteinosis (aPAP) is a rare parenchymal lung disease characterized by accumulation of surfactant in the airways with high levels of granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF) antibodies in blood. Disease leads to hypoxemic respiratory failure. Whole lung lavage (WLL) is considered the first line therapy, but procedure can be quite demanding, specifically for children. Recently alternative treatment options with inhaled GM-CSF have been descr...

Immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a chronic disease that presents with inflammation and fibrosis of involved tissue. It encompasses several disorders previously described using different terms, but all disorders are characterised by IgG4-positive plasma cells and lymphocytes infiltration of tissues. We report a rare case of a 58-year-old man with IgG4-related pleural disease without other systemic manifestations. The diagnosis was based on characteristic changes on PET-CT and typica...
