NONSPECIFIC INTERSTITIAL PNEUMONIA (NSIP): OVERVIEW
Nonspecific Interstitial Pneumonia (NSIP) is a kind of interstitial lung disease. It is a rare condition in which the tissue that surrounds and separates the alveoli (the small air sacs of the lungs) gets inflamed. The condition may also lead to the inflammation of the pleura (a thin covering which provides protection and cushioning to the lungs and their individual lobes) in some cases.
In other words, Nonspecific Interstitial pneumonia characteristically leads to the inflammation of the mesh-like walls of the alveoli and the pleura.
The exact cause of Nonspecific interstitial pneumonia is not known, though hereditary factors are believed to play a role in the development of the condition. Moreover, Nonspecific interstitial pneumonia often develops in various diseases, including HIV, diseases resulting from reactions to certain medications, diseases which affect the body’s structural tissues (connective tissue disorders) and several other conditions.
There are basically two main types of Nonspecific interstitial pneumonia --- Cellular and Fibrotic. In people affected by Cellular form of NSIP, the cells of the interstitium get inflamed; whereas in the people affected by Fibrotic form of NSIP, the lung tissue thickens and gets scarred, and thus cannot function effectively. Although it is possible for inflammation as well as fibrosis to be present simultaneously, the prognosis is comparatively much better for patients suffering from Cellular form of NSIP than those suffering from Fibrotic form of NSIP.

The common signs and symptoms of Nonspecific interstitial pneumonia typically include constitutional complaints which are common to connective tissue diseases, including fatigue, fever, and a general feeling of poor health.
