Children's interstitial lung disease

How might chILD be treated?

There is no single treatment for interstitial lung diseases in children. Different forms of chILD require different treatments and support depending on the condition. The goals of treatment for chILD is to relieve symptoms, provide support to maximize growth and development, and to prevent exposure to preventable illnesses that could make the chILD worse. See the Children's Interstitial and Diffuse Lung Disease Foundation for more detailed information about treatment.
