PURPOSE: In continuation of earlier presented data (Ansarie et al, CWC 2014 & ERS 2012) about the incidence of various ILDs in Karachi (estimated population 20 million), we observed a high proportion of IPF (Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis) & HP (Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis) in its avian exposed population. Therefore we decided to investigate the profile of this stratified segment.
