Abstract


Hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP), also called extrinsic allergic alveolitis, is a complex syndrome of varying intensity, clinical presentation and natural history rather than a single, uniform disease. Numerous inciting agents have been described including, but not limited to, agricultural dusts, bioaerosols, microorganisms (fungal, bacterial, or protozoal), and certain drugs. Prompt diagnosis of HP is important, as the disease is reversible when diagnosed early in its course. Correct diagnosis is based upon exposure history, clinical assessment, radiographic and physiologic findings, and, if possible, the response to avoidance of the suspected etiologic agent.
