      Acute exacerbation could be life-threatening for idiopathic interstitial pneumonia (IIP) patients. It is often challenging to choose a surgical treatment for a patient with IIP associated with lung cancer because lung resection is one of the risk factors of acute exacerbation. The objective of this present study was to investigate the correlation between preoperative findings of 18F-FDG PET/CT and postoperative acute exacerbation in patients with IIP associated with lung cancer.

      We retrospectively reviewed the data of 450 patients who underwent lung resection for non-small cell lung cancer between November 2012 and October 2017. We excluded patients who had preoperative radiotherapy (25 patients) from the analysis. All these patients preoperatively underwent 18F-FDG PET/CT for staging lung cancer. The maximum standardized uptake value ( was

      CT findings of IIPs were found in 31 out of 425 patients (7.1%). Five out of 31 patients (16.1%) developed acute exacerbation after lung resection. These 5 patients had significantly higher SUVmax in the lesions of IIPs compared 26 patients without postoperative acute

      This study demonstrated that 18F-FDG PET/CT findings may predict postoperative acute exacerbation of IIP in lung cancer patients.
