Abstract

To review inhaled antigens in home environments that cause hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP) of varied clinical expressions and histopathologic patterns. Computer-assisted MEDLINE and manual searches for articles concerning HP, interstitial lung disease (ILD), epidemiology of HP and ILD, challenge procedures of HP, and indoor fungi. Published articles concerning inhaled antigens in home environments and HP were selected. Current criteria for the diagnosis of HP are too restrictive, because most apply only to the classic acute presentation and are of limited value in the subacute and insidious forms. Clinical expressions vary across the gamut of respiratory tract signs and symptoms. Patterns on lung biopsy may include all histopathologic descriptions of idiopathic ILD. The home is the likely causative environment rather than the workplace. Exposures may be occult and require in-depth environmental histories and on-site investigations to detect antigens and sources. Natural or environmental challenges have become an important tool for diagnosing HP and determining effectiveness of remediation. Early diagnosis and effective remediation of the cause lead to a high survival rate, whereas diagnosis in advanced stages leads to disabil...Continue Reading

Allergy and Asthma

Allergy and asthma are inflammatory disorders that are triggered by the activation of an allergen-specific regulatory t cell. These t cells become activated when allergens are recognized by allergen-presenting cells. Here is the latest research on allergy and asthma.
