3 doctors weighed in:

My sister says she has interstitial pneumonia. Are family members more likely to get the same thing?

In brief: Not likely

There are many causes for interstitial pneumonia but generally these are not things that are more likely for other family members to develop.
Your sister should talk with her physician about this.
