Abstract

Interstitial lung disease (ILD) can develop in patients with connective tissue disease (CTD) in the context of progressive multiorgan involvement, but ILD can also be the predominant manifestation of active CTD. A high index of suspicion for CTD in patients presenting with pulmonary disease might facilitate timely, accurate diagnosis and management.
