Bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia, 25 years: a variety of causes, but what are the treatment options?
Importantly, the authors called attention to the pneumonitis component having inflammation and fibrosis but little or no organizing pneumonia, helping to differentiate BIP from its very similar acronym, BOOP (bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia), which is now currently referred to as cryptogenic organizing pneumonia, or COP.
The term bronchiolitis obliterans has been used to describe involvement of the bronchioles, and it was part of the previous name for this lesion (bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia).
(29,39,156-186) It may also be idiopathic, termed cryptogenic organizing pneumonia, formerly termed idiopathic bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia. (44) Histologically, organizing pneumonia is characterized by plugs of granulation tissue, composed of fibroblasts within a myxoid or edematous stroma, which are located within bronchiolar lumens, alveolar ducts, and associated alveolar airspaces (Figure 9).
The histologic pattern of OP, as defined in the current American Thoracic Society/European Respiratory Society consensus classification of interstitial lung disease, corresponds to the entity formerly termed bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia. The clinical term for idiopathic OP is cryptogenic organizing pneumonia (COP).
They noted these findings in cryptogenic fibrosing alveolitis, sarcoidosis, farmer's lung disease, histiocytosis, and also bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia (BOOP).
