Jolanda Nikolla MD, Hasan Hafizi

Aim To identify differences between combined pulmonary fibrosis and emphysema syndrome (CPFE) and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) by a retrospective comparison of clinical data including clinical characteristics and baseline changes in pulmonary function. Methods We studied demographic, clinical and physiologic features for two groups of patients, (total N=26) those with CPFE (7 males and 5 females) and them with IPF (5 males and 9 females). Results The mean age was nearly the same.Predominates males smokers in CPFE.IPF patients had lower FVC and MRC values and higher PO2 values. Conclusions CPFE syndrome is a distinct entity. These patient are severely ill and should be differentiate from them with IPF.
