Current Case:

A 67-years old presented with a fibrosing ILD in 2018, which was diagnosed as probable UIP/IPF

In May 24, a follow-up CT showed progression of disease and a new lung nodule.

The pulmonologist wanted a biopsy. I thought this would be the best route.

A new paper also discusses this issue.

The video discusses the case, the approach to this lesion with a discussion on biopsy of focal lung lesions in patients with fibrosing ILDs with multiple other examples
