This paper summarizes a selection of the scientific presentations on interstitial lung diseases that were made in the European Respiratory Society (ERS) Congress 2018 in Paris. The interstitial lung diseases (ILD) are a group of over 300 disorders, including sarcoidosis, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, connective tissue disease and extrinsic allergic alveolitis. Only one in three cases has a known cause. A number of developments were presented in all areas of these diseases including those with and without a known cause, sarcoidosis and rare conditions.
