The term «interstitial lung diseases» refers to a large heterogeneous group of diseases that differ in etiology, pathogenetic mechanisms of the development, clinic as well as therapeutic approach and result in primary lesion of the pulmonary interstitium. The lecture highlights the current scientific data on risk factors, pathogenesis, clinic, diagnosis and principles of treating intrathoracic sarcoidosis in adolescents.
Key words: adolescents, intrathoracic forms of sarcoidosis, clinic, diagnosis, therapy.
