    Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic lung disease characterized by progressive lung scarring that is thought to occur in a genetically susceptible, ageing individual through aberrant reparative responses to repeated injury to the alveolar epithelium. This Primer summarizes the processes thought to underlie the development of IPF and clinical challenges faced in treating patients with this irreversible condition.
