Interstitial pneumonia


Interstitial pneumonia arises when from an inflammation of the “mesh-like” walls of the alveoli (or air sacs) in the lungs;  as a result, the small air sacs in the lungs become separated. There might be an inflammation of the pleura (a thin cover that shields the lungs and its individual lobes) as well.  Interstitial pneumonia is considered to be rare.
