Acute worsening of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is increasingly recognized as one of the main causes of disease progression, loss in health-related quality of life, and disease-associated mortality. While substantial progress has been made in the long-term management of IPF, our knowledge of causes, early identification, essential diagnostic procedures including biomarkers, and especially about disease modifying treatments of acute worsening, i.e. acute exacerbations of IPF is still in its infancy.
