Scarring in lungs. Pulmonary fibrosis is scarring in the lungs. There are several types, the worst being idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (ipf), which is progressive disease that has no cure. The scarring can be from many causes, such as a previous infection or an exposure to a toxic substance or irritant. Smoking can also cause fibrosis. If you think you have this, you should get a full work up by your doctor.
