Description An idiopathic interstitial pneumonia which is a distinctive type of chronic fibrosing interstitial pneumonia with thick scarring in the lung creating a honeycomb appearance. The main symptoms start insidiously as shortness of breath on exertion, cough, and diminished stamina. Other common complaints include weight loss and fatigue. The level of oxygen in the blood decreases, and the skin may take on a bluish tinge (called cyanosis) and the ends of the fingers may become thick or club-shape. In most people, symptoms worsen over a period ranging from about 6 months to several years. (Human Disease Ontology, DOID_0050156)
