[en] Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a rare disorder of unknown origin, which is associated with a high mortality and whose incidence has been increasing for several years. Nowadays there are two anti-fibrotic therapies (pirfenidone - nintedanib) known to reduce significantly the decline in respiratory function tests of patients suffering from this condition. The only curative therapeutic option remains the pulmonary transplantation whose accessibility remains limited. Pulmonary rehabilitation is also central in the treatment of patients. A major challenge for patients remains early and aggressive management to reduce as early as possible the evolution towards severe pulmonary fibrosis.
