BACKGROUND To investigate whether the better prognosis of interstitial pneumonias associated with collagen vascular disease (CVD) compared with idiopathic interstitial pneumonia (IIP) is due to higher frequency of the nonspecific interstitial pneumonia (NSIP) pattern in CVD, we compared the outcomes of patients from these two groups with the same histopathologic pattern. SUBJECTS The clinical features and survival of 362 patients (269 with IIP and 93 with CVD) diagnosed using surgical lung… CONTINUE READING
