Interstitial Lung Diseases (ILDs) are a group of several disorders that can cause scarring in your lungs. The scar tissue in your lungs affects your lungs’ ability to carry oxygen and can make it harder for you to breathe normally. In ILDs, scarring damages tissues in or around the lungs’ air sacs, or alveoli, and airways.
