These illnesses are distinguished by varying degrees of inflammation, scarring, or both, and they impair the lung’s capacity to take in oxygen from the surrounding air. Pulmonary fibrosis, sometimes known simply as PF, refers to the formation of scar tissue in the lungs and may be seen in many different forms of ILD.
