- Non-specfic interstitial pneumonia (NSIP), fibrosing variant Case 138

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.
