            TERMINOLOGY

            • Abbreviations

              • Lipoid pneumonia (LP)
            • Synonyms

              • Lipid pneumonia
              • Cholesterol pneumonia
              • Golden pneumonia
            • Definitions

              • LP classified as exogenous or endogenous types based on etiology
              • Exogenous LP: Airspace disease resulting from aspiration of vegetable, animal or mineral oils with scant or no acute inflammatory reaction
                • Acute LP: Uncommon and typically caused by episode of aspiration of large quantity of petroleum-based product
                • Chronic LP: Due to repeated episodes of aspiration or inhalation of animal fat, mineral or vegetable lipids over extended period of time
              • Endogenous LP: Airspace disease resulting from accumulation of secretions distal to bronchial obstruction
                • Often associated with non-small cell lung cancers; may occasionally be associated with pulmonary infection
