INTRODUCTION: Hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP) is a broad characterization of interstitial lung disease caused by immune reactions to inhaled agents. Known offending agents include agricultural dust, aerosolized contaminated water, bird droppings, and mold, among others. Diagnosis is made when clinical suspicion is high, and with the aid of high-resolution CT scan, bronchioalveolar lavage (BAL), lung biopsy, and at times, antigenic panels.
