This book aims to be a complete guide to diagnose, manage, and treat rare lung diseases encountered by practicing pulmonologists and trainees. It extensively covers the “more common” of the rare lung diseases, categorizing them based on developmental lung anomalies in adults, airway disorders, diffuse parenchymal lung diseases, neoplasms, rare vascular disorders, and other miscellaneous conditions. This comprehensive review facilitates the study and understanding of this complex and diverse set of disorders, focusing on differential diagnosis, evidence-based discussions of management algorithms, and thoughtful analysis of treatment options.
