Were you looking for information on Pulmonary Fibrosis? Pulmanary fibrosis is a common misspelling of pulmonary fibrosis.
Pulmonary fibrosis is a medical term used to describe scarring and thickening deep inside the lungs. It is seen as a result of many types of conditions. Some of the known causes of lung damage seen in pulmonary fibrosis include certain antibiotics, radiation, or long-term exposure to toxic gases.
The main treatment is medication, such as prednisone, to reduce inflammation. However, treatment cannot remove current scarring. Therefore, diagnosing and treating pulmonary fibrosis as early as possible, before a lot of scarring has occurred, is important.
