Pneumopatie infiltrative diffuse. Clinica, anatomia patologica, HRTC
a cura di M. Maffessanti, G. Dalpiaz
editore: Springer Verlag
Questo volume si prefigge di fornire a tutti coloro che, di fronte ad un sospetto clinico di Pneumopatia Infiltrativa Diffusa, si sentono confusi stante la molteplicita delle patologie in gioco a fronte di una sintomatologia, di un radiogramma del torace e di reperti funzionali sovente aspecifici. Nella pratica clinica, l'iniziale orientamento in questo labirinto e sempre dato sempre piu spesso dalla Tomografia Computerizzata ad Alta Risoluzione (HRTC) i cui reperti consentono di formulare le prime ipotesi e di programmare gli accertamenti successivi ma talvolta sono di per se stessi conclusivi. La proposta degli Autori e di usare proprio l'HRTC come "filo d'Arianna" per districarsi nel dedalo di queste pneumopatie, e precisamente di partire dalla TC del Paziente, identificarne il pattern predominante per mezzo di immagini di riferimento e poi, con l'aiuto di tavole sinottiche, di restringere il ventaglio delle ipotesi diagnostiche ad una o comunque ad un numero limitato di malattie. Ciascuna malattia e poi trattata in uno spazio dedicato dove vengono descritti l'epidemiologia ed i fattori di rischio, le modalita di presentazione e i dati funzionali e successivamente vengono illustrati gli aspetti anatomopatologici, radiologici ed i reperti del lavaggio broncoalveolare. Non mancano paragrafi che ne delineano evoluzione e complicanze ed altri che propongono concretamente l'iter diagnostico piu opportuno per giungere alla diagnosi definitiva."
