PURPOSE: Subset of interstitial lung disease (ILD) patients with clinical and/or serological features of connective tissue disease (CTD), not meeting their established diagnostic criteria, is classified as autoimmune featured ILD (AIF-ILD). Despite increasing prevalence, there is great paucity of literature about the profile of this entity. Hence this study aimed to characterize the clinical, radiological and serological attributes of patients diagnosed as AIF-ILD at an Indian tertiary care centre.
