Interstitial lung diseases present clinically with unspecific respiratory symptoms and occur idiopathically or etiologically linked to various causes. The morphology of interstitial lung diseases (radiology or histopathology) may also be unspecific in the individual case, due to the limited arsenal of reaction patterns of the lungs. Only the combination of all findings assembled during multidisciplinary discussion (MDD) between pulmonologist, radiologist and pathologist, and if required other specialties, enables a highly reliable final diagnosis, permitting improved, personalized patient treatment. The necessity for histological evaluation and the means of tissue acquisition should also be decided on during MDD, considering clinical and radiological differential diagnoses, the risks involved in the procedures and patient-specific characteristics. In the current review, we discuss MDD as the diagnostic gold standard and exemplify its merit presenting a case of interstitial lung disease.
