IPF is a subcategory of pulmonary fibrosis, a chronic and typically progressive scarring lung disease. Some patients live many years with this disease, while some may have a shorter life with it. IPF has no known cause and to date, there is no cure, although there are some treatment options available to ease the symptoms.
