Pulmonary Disease

Common Name(s)

Pulmonary Disease

Pulmonary disease is any problem in the lungs or that prevents the lungs from working properly. The three main types of lung disease are airway diseases, lung tissue diseases and lung circulation diseases.

Airway diseases are diseases that affect the tracts that carry oxygen or other gases to the lung. Some examples are asthma or bronchiectasis. Lung tissue diseases are the ones that affect the tissues of the lung, causing for example inflammation. Lung circulation diseases are the ones that affect the blood vessels in the lungs, which may also affect heart function. Many lung diseases involve a combination of these three types.
