Idiopathic or primary pulmonary fibrosis involves scarring of the lung. Fibrotic tissue replaces air sacs of the lungs. Pulmonary tissue loses its ability to transfer oxygen to blood stream. Symptoms are shortness of breath, chronic dry cough, weakness, rapid weight loss. Idiopathic means that causal agent of the disease is not known.
