Rare Lung Diseases
For Healthcare Professionals

Information for Healthcare Professionals

The Rare Lung Diseases Program at Cincinnati Children's offers a number of services and resources for referring physicians. Our referral process makes it easy to receive consults and connect patients with the care they need. Because chest CT and lung biopsy interpretation can be integral to diagnosis of many rare lung diseases, we approach consultative cases in an inter-disciplinary manner. We perform a spectrum of clinical and basic research on many rare lung diseases and related lung biology.
