Acute interstitial pneumonia

Acute interstitial pneumonia (AIP) is a rare and rapidly developing fulminant lung injury. The onset is rapid (within a few days to weeks), characterized by fever, cough and shortness of breath, followed by respiratory failure, similar to idiopathic ARDS of unknown cause. The average age of onset was 49 years old, and there was no significant gender difference. Routine laboratory tests were nonspecific. The mortality of AIP is very high (> 60%), and most of them die within 1 ~ 2 months.
