Clinical study of interstitial lung disease (ILD) in mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD). MCTD is characterized by a combination of clinical features of progressive systemic sclerosis, systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, polymyositis/dermatomyositis, with a high anti-snRNP antibody titer. MCTD-ILD characteristics are not specific. When systemic sclerosis manifestations are present, MCTD-ILD seems to associate more frequently pulmonary hypertension and progressive ILD. G. Colin . Revue des Maladies Respiratoires 2010 March. (Also see: Pulmonary Fibrosis and MCTD)
