Extract

Pleuroparenchymal fibroelastosis (PPFE) is a rare disease characterized by a fibrosing process affecting the pleura and the subpleural lung parenchyma, with a predilection for the upper lobes. The etiology of PPFE is unclear at this juncture, about half of cases are felt to be idiopathic. It usually shows a progressive clinical course and has a poor prognosis. There is currently no specific therapy, but in progressive cases, lung transplantation may be required.

Authors will present a clinical case.
