Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is one of the most common genetic (inherited) diseases in America. It is also one of the most serious. It mainly affects the lungs and the digestive systems in the body, causing breathing problems and problems digesting foods. It is a chronic disease that currently has no cure.

The CF Center at Stanford is an integrated disease management program that follows patients from
diagnosis through adulthood.

With the current longer life expectancy for patients with Cystic Fibrosis, our clinic population includes patients of all ages. More than half the patients followed by the Stanford CF Center are adults aged 18 years or older.
