原始语种摘要: Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a chronic disease of the connective tissue with an estimated prevalence of 5.8 per 100 000 in a multiethnic population living in Europe [1]. The disease mechanisms are highly complex, affecting multiple organs, including the pulmonary system. Severe pulmonary complications include SSc-associated interstitial lung disease (ILD) and pulmonary hypertension (PH), which are also associated with premature mortality [2, 3]. Early diagnosis and monitoring of pulmonary complications by spirometry, body plethysmography and pulmonary diffusing capacity are critical to lung health in SSc patients [4, 5].
