In problematic cases, (3) performance elastic fiber stain, such as elastic Van Gieson stain, would be useful because the stain demonstrates a more sparse, fragmented, and disorganized elastic fiber distribution in the areas of fibrosis in UIP4 compared with more marked and established elastic fiber deposition in relation to the alveolar walls in PPFE, which is described as containing at least twice as much elastin compared with UIP.
