Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic disease in which scarring and thickening of the lungs’ tissue occurs due to unknown causes, impairing pulmonary functions.Over time, the scarring becomes worse and as the lungs cannot take it enough oxygen, it becomes hard to take a deep breath.

In the normal process of breathing, oxygen moves through tiny air sacs in the lungs, then into bloodstream, and finally travels to all the organs. However, IPF slows the flow of oxygen from the lungs to the blood, which affects the normal functioning of the body.

The symptoms of IPF are often not noticed until the disease is well-established. IPF affects each person differently and the rate at which disease progresses may vary. Symptoms of IPF include -
- A dry, hacking cough.
- Chest pain or tightness.
- Leg swelling.
- Loss of appetite.
- Shortness of breath, especially after a walk or other activity.

Other common symptoms include -
- Feeling more tired than usual.
- Joint and muscle aches.
- Weight loss.
- Clubbing (swelling of the fingers).

A pulmonologist will ask a patient about their medical history and other lung-related illnesses or medical causes, and then perform a physical examination. The pulmonologist can ask the patient to undergo various diagnostic tests for IPF. These can include chest imaging studies such as -
- X-rays or high-resolution CT scans.
- Lung biopsy.
- Pulmonary function test.
- Oxygen desaturation study.
- Other laboratory tests.
