1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

This is the name for the pathology of a disorder called pulmonary fibrosis.
This is a progressive disease, which has no cure, how fast it progresses can vary, and if personally affected by this or if one of your loved ones is so affected it is best to discuss the details with your doctor.
