PURPOSE: The aim of this study is to assess the clinical characteristics and outcomes of patients with MPO-ANCA positive interstitial pneumonia (IP).
METHODS: We have conducted a retrospective study of 41 patients (20 males and 21 females ; mean age, 73.0 years) with MPO-ANCA positive IP admitted to our hospital between January 2004 and December 2014. 41 patients were classified into IP with systemic involvement of vasculitis (IP associated with microscopic polyangiitis : MPA-IP) and without other organ involvement (pulmonary limited vasculitis : PLV). The clinical features, chest CT scan images, laboratory findings, pulmonary function tests, and survival between these two groups were compared.
