Lymphoid Interstitial Pneumonia in HIV Infected Individuals

  • Mario J. Saldana
  • Joan M. Mones


The popularity of the open lung biopsy during the 1950s and 1960s enabled pathologists, particularly Liebow and his followers1,2 to define most forms of interstitial pneumonia as presently recognized. The clinical, radiological, and pathological recognition of such entities, as well as the study of their etiopathogenesis, evolution, and treatment has impacted the practice of medicine in an indelible manner ever since.
