Term Detail
MP term:abnormal lung interstitium morphology
Synonym: abnormal pulmonary interstitium morphology
Synonym: lung interstitium dysplasia
MP id: MP:0002276
Definition: any structural anomaly of the connective tissue located between the respiratory (airway and alveolar) epithelium, the capillary endothelium and pleural mesothelium; it contains basement membrane composed of collagen, elastin, proteoglycans, and fibronectin; it functions in the mechanical behavior of the lung, and forms a barrier to regulate the flow of plasma constituents from the capillaries to the airway and alveolar spaces
