Abstract

Introduction. Modern aspects of the diagnostics and treatment of interstitial lung diseases are closely connected with the comorbidity, which is based on the study of the associations between cardiovascular diseases and interstitial lung diseases. Material and Methods. The study included 65 patients with non-specific interstitial pneumonia, 78 patients with hypersensitive pneumonitis, and 68 patients with lung sarcoidosis. Results. An association between the character of morphological alterations in the lung tissue and clinical-functional disorders was established. More expressed fibrous and interstitial alterations corresponded to more intense respiratory symptoms and more severe disturbances of ventilation and diffuse parameters of the lungs. There was a tendency in the dilation of right and left compartments of the heart in the group of patients with interstitial lung diseases associated with cardiovascular diseases.
