Connective tissue disease-associated interstitial lung disease (CTD-ILD) is a lung disease that may happen to some people with a connective tissue disease. CTD-ILD causes inflammation and scarring (fibrosis) of the lungs. Some patients with ILD may have features of a CTD, but not meet all of the criteria necessary to diagnosis a specific autoimmune disease. Learn more >
