Hi,
How are you? Nonspecific interstitial pneumonia (NSIP) is a rare disorder affecting  the tissue that surrounds and separates alveoli of the lungs. It can be idiopathic or can be associated with medical conditions such as connective tissue disorders, HIV, hypersensitivity pneumonitis and even as a  reaction to certain medications. Treatment will depend on the type of NSIP (cellular or fibrotic), the symptoms present, medical history and presence of other conditions. Medications such as oral corticosteroids or immunosuppressive drugs may be indicated. It is best that you check with your attending physician and discuss the management plan for you. Take care and do keep us posted.
