Abstract

Interstitial pneumonia with autoimmune features (IPAF) is relatively a new category of idiopathic interstitial pneumonia that includes undifferentiated forms of connective tissue disease-associated interstitial lung disease. Extensive search for underlying autoimmune condition is warranted in this setting. This report elaborates a case of IPAF with positive anti scl 70, an antibody specific for systemic sclerosis.
