I'm not a doctor, but from my research, a lung transplant isn't a treatment option for AIP. There are a whole slew of potential complications associated with waiting for a lung transplant and a transplant itself.

As my article says, the idea behind treatment of this condition is to help the patient breathe while the condition resolves and the lungs eventually (hopefully) clear.

I know this condition is very scary for loved ones and I can sense that you're worried about her and just want her to be well. Now that they've got a diagnosis, hopefully the doctors will get aggressive with treatment and she will respond positively. Unfortunately, this is one of those extremely frustrating and stressful "wait and see" kind of conditions.

Please let us know what happens.
