Interstitial Lung Disease

About Our Practice

Interstitial lung diseases (ILD) are characterized by persistent lung inflammation and scarring. The Johns Hopkins Interstitial Lung Disease Clinic provides state-of-the-art clinical care, patient and physician education, and cutting-edge research into the causes and treatments for this group of diseases. The clinic is devoted to the care of patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and other forms of interstitial lung disease, such as autoimmune-associated ILD, bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia, hypersensitivity pneumonitis and lymphocytic interstitial pneumonitis. The clinic provides initial evaluations, secondary consultations and follow-up care.

The main Interstitial Lung Disease clinic is located at the Johns Hopkins Greenspring campus. In addition, we have a specialty clinic for patients with myositis-associated ILD, which is located at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Campus in the Myositis Center.
