Clinical features and genetic analysis of surfactant protein C in adult-onset familial interstitial pneumonia.

Abstract

Familial cases of interstitial pneumonia (FIP) have been reported to be linked to mutations of the surfactant protein C (SP-C) gene. Based on this knowledge, we evaluated the characteristics of patients with adult-onset FIP in the Tokyo area using clinical and radiopathological findings, and further evaluated the genetic background of patients with FIP… (More)
