Brief Description about the Project
Interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) are a heterogeneous group of diffuse lung diseases of known and unknown etiology. There has been an increase in the understanding of various ILDs and differentiating these into specific groups is essential for better management. It is important to study the risk factors, pathogenesis, treatment and outcomes of various ILDs. Prevalence of ILD in several countries has increased over time. However, majority of the studies have been performed in the developed countries (Europe and North America). Epidemiologic studies and registries have often relied on International Classification of Diseases, historical databases, or physician labelled diagnosis, leading to biased reporting. A multidisciplinary discussion (MDD) among expert pulmonologists, radiologists, and pathologists familiar with ILD has been recommended to facilitate accurate diagnosis of ILDs. With differences in the genetic profile, environmental factors, occupational exposures, smoking habits, socio-cultural and farming practices in developing countries, the spectrum of ILDs may be different from other regions of the world. There is an unmet need for studies on the epidemiology of ILDs from the developing world. Only two cross sectional studies from India with a reasonable sample size have been reported. A large multicentre registry from India reported hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP) as the most prevalent ILD, contrary to the data from tertiary care centre in north India which reported sarcoidosis as the most common ILD.
Therefore, we aim to study the spectrum and prevalence of diffuse parenchymal lung diseases by developing a National ILD registry using multidisciplinary discussion (MDD) to validate the diagnoses, along with probable etiologies, prognosis and quality of life assessment.
