Bringing together pathologists, clinicians and diagnostic radiologists to produce a simplified analysis and a unification of the existing concepts in the diagnosis and treatment of diffuse lung diseases, this volume highlights pathological changes and presents the latest diagnostic modalities. Detailed therapeutic strategies are proposed based on epidemiological findings, radiographic manifestations, and the complex pathophysiological basis of each disorder. The result will appeal not only to the sophisticated practitioner but will also provide material that is sufficiently organised and didactic to be used by the young physician.A CD4/CD8 T-cell ratio greater than 2 may be seen in sarcoidosis, tuberculosis, berylliosis, and fungal infections . ... the analysis of Tcell subsets may not differentiate between these two entities associated with BAL lymphocytosis .
