Aip, or haymann-rich syndrome, is a usually severe inflammatory disease of the lungs.
It is somewhat rare and is a diagnosis of exclusion. Fungal infections, strange bacteria
, and aids
-related infections must be ruled out prior to this diagnosis. It can be a rapid and severe disease, requiring pts to be in icu. Steroids
at high doses are a recommended tx, but there is little evidence.
