Other adult respiratory disorders in which either surfactant replacement therapy or abnormal surfactant regulation may occur include pneumonia, lung transplants, sarcoidosis, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, alveolar proteinosis, obstructive lung disease including asthma, radiation pneumonitis, and drug-induced pulmonary disease.
They then deal with specific categories of disease, including bronchiolitis, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, collagen vascular diseases, pulmonary hypertension with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, sarcoidosis, and interstitial lung diseases associated with occupational exposures.
