PURPOSE: This prospective study was to evaluate the changes of electromyography (EMG) in systemic connective tissue disease-associated interstitial lung disease (CTD-ILD).

METHODS: Patients that were newly diagnosed with CTD-ILD were screened with EMG. The damage were classified as neurogenic, myogenic or mixed, each was graded as mild, moderate and severe. Lung function and clinical data were collected using questionnaires. The fibrosis score by high-resolution CT scanning were evaluated by two separate radiologists.
