The Fleischner society paper notes that, in line with the previous guidelines, (2) the histopathologic confirmation is not needed in the context of a "typical UIP pattern," which demonstrates basal-predominant (occasionally diffuse) and subpleural-predominant, often heterogeneous, reticular opacities with peripheral traction bronchiectasis or bronchiolectasis, with honeycombing, and an absence of features to suggest an alternative diagnosis (1) (Table).

(6) Histologic diagnoses were collapsed into 2 groups: definite/probable UIP (the UIP group) or possible/not UIP (the non-UIP group).

The histopathologic criteria of UIP are well known and are most commonly encountered in patients with IPF, which was defined in the 2011 ATS/ERS/JRS/ALAT evidence-based guidelines for diagnosis and management of IPF "as a specific form of chronic, progressive, fibrosing interstitial pneumonia of unknown cause, occurring primarily in older adults, and limited to the lungs." (5) IPF is the classic cause of progressive, fibrosing, restrictive lung disease; "the histopathologic hallmark and chief diagnostic criterion is a heterogeneous appearance at low magnification in which areas of fibrosis with scarring and honeycomb change alternate with areas of less affected or normal parenchyma.
