A Links - Non-specfic interstitial pneumonia (NSIP), cellular variant - Case 137. -* http://www.flickr.com/photos/pulmonary_pathology/4841442336 -* http://www.flickr.com/photos/pulmonary_pathology/4840828569 - Non-specfic interstitial pneumonia (NSIP), fibrosing variant Case 138 -* http://www.flickr.com/photos/pulmonary_pathology/4840828713 -* http://www.flickr.com/photos/pulmonary_pathology/4840828833 NSIP occurs in two variants: - 1) a cellular variant without fibroblastic proliferation and fibrosis. (NSIP cellular variant) - 2) A fibrosing variant exhibiting fibroblastic proliferation and collagen deposition. (NSIP fibrosing variant) The fibrosing variant has a worse prognosis than the celllular variant.
