Other nuclear reactions can help clinicians to delimit, for example, MCTD
, SjS, SSc, PM, DM, PBC, or other autoimmune diseases.

The specimens were retrospectively classified according to predefined diagnoses as follows: total AARD (n =112), SLE (n = 67), SSc (n = 21), SS (n =19), MCTD
(n = 5), and control (n = 1003).
The diagnosis of MCTD
was conducted using the classification criteria proposed by Sharp et al.
 In contrast to the SLE, the association of MCTD
and TTP has only been represented in the literature by 15 case reports.
In RA, the reported frequency of pulmonary involvement ranges between 19 and 67%, while the corresponding figure in patients with MCTD
or PSS is 85%.

Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a common complication of connective tissue diseases (CTD) such as systemic sclerosis (SSc), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD
), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and primary Sjogren's syndrome (pSS).
(g) Mixed Connective Tissue Disease, also known as Sharp's Syndrome, (20) commonly abbreviated as MCTD
is an autoimmune disease in which the body's defence system attacks itself.
