Clinical characteristics and survival in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and connective tissue disease-associated usual interstitial pneumonia (CTD-UIP).

 

Although the survival of CTD-UIP patients was similar compared with that of IPF/UIP patients, it appears that Undifferentiated Connective Tissue Disease influences the survival rate of CTD-UIP patients.
