Acute exacerbation of interstitial lung disease (AEILD)

Back in the old days this was known as Hamman-Rich syndrome. It can occur de novo or as an exacerbation of previously known stable ILD. It can present as ARDS that's not run-of-the-mill ARDS (see here and here).

Recently a new review was published in Current Opinion in Pulmonary Medicine. Worth having in the full text.
