Abstract

 


In this study, we aimed to reveal the rate and the pattern of lung involvement in patients diagnosed as having rheumatoid arthritis (RA) by high resolution computed tomography (HRCT). On HRCT, 15 of 19 (78.9%) patients had interstitial involvement and 5 (26.3%) of them had bronchiectasia. 10 of the patients who had interstitial involvement had interstitial nodules, 6 patients had ground glass appearance, 3 patients had honeycombing and 2 patients had septal thickening.
