INTRODUCTION: Familial interstitial lung disease(ILD) is defined as presence of ILD in 2 or more family members. Surfactant protein C(SFTPC) gene mutation is a known cause of familial ILD. Pulmonary neuroendocrine cell(PNEC) hyperplasia may occur secondary to chronic lung disease, or idiopathic, but is indistinguishable histologically.
