Clinical Information
Clinical Dx: Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis; Emphysema; Cardiac dilation; Coeliac disease; Vasculitis.
Pathology: Section shows extensive fibrosis and associated chronic inflammation (including lymphoid aggregates and follicles). There is also bronchiectasis and extensive loss of alveoli. No obvious necrotising granulomata are seen, which are usually associated with TB. The lack of these granulomata cannot however rule out the presence of TB organisms. Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) was discovered in the donor's lung but not in the sample that was used to islolate parenchymal fibroblasts.
Medications: Carbocisteine; Omeprazole
