Abstract

Etiology and pathogenesis of the interstitial lung disease in children result from a heterogeneous group of infectious, immunological and metabolic factors. In children an important role plays a surfactant protein B and C deficiency. SP-C deficiency is determined by it’s defective synthesis or impaired production of ABCA3 transporter, as well as with abnormalities within different metabolic pathways. In the paper clinical manifestation, radiological findings, molecular background and prognosis in interstitial lung diseases associated with SP-B and SP-C defects have been discussed.
