Speaking of ILD…

Today at VA MR we had great discussion about ILD associated with Scleroderma and along with numerous other teaching points, Dr. Kazi gave us this clinical pearl!

Serology associated with ILD:

  • ScL-70
  • RNA Polymerase III – which is associated with ILD, but it’s most important association is with scleroderma renal crisis

Also, of note, he pointed out that PM-SCL identifies patients with overlap Polymyositis and Sclerdoerma.
