Desquamative interstitial pneumonia (DIP) is a variant of idiopathic interstitial pneumonias, but characteristicalIy has massive desquamation and proliferation of alveolar cells into the distal air space with minimal fibrosis of the alveolar wall. DIP seems to have better response to corticosteroid and benign prognosis than idiopathic interstitial pneumonia. We experienced one case of 6-year old girl who showed typical picture of DIF on lung biopsy specimen. Her response to prednisone therapy was dramatic. This case illustrates the need of early open lung biopsy for prompt diagnosis and treatment in a child with nonresponsive pulmonary disease
Key Words: Desquamative Interstitial Pneumonia (DIP)
