Extract

Background: Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is the most prevalent form of idiopathic interstitial pneumonias (IIPs), a heterogeneous group of interstitial lung disorders of unknown origin. Management strategies differ substantially in IPF and non-IPF IIPs. This makes meticulous diagnosis of IPF essential. Patients' characteristics and clinical practice often differ from available study reports. Critical appraisal of current practices is possible by analysis of registries and aims to improve patient care.
