Patients with UCTD exhibit autoantibodies and signs or symptoms associated with CTD, but they do not meet the criteria for a defined subtype of collagen disease.
To map mesoscale and submesoscale features, a Teledyne Oceanscience Underway CTD (uCTD), fitted with SBE conductivity-temperature (CT) sensors, was used for measuring temperature and salinity profiles while the ship was sailing at a speed of 6 kt (3.06 m [s.sup.-1]).
In terms of the distribution by the ABO blood groups, the O blood type had SLE, SSc, and FMF at the highest rate; the A blood type had vasculitis, UCTD, RA, and SpA at the highest rate; the B blood type had Behcet's disease and FMF at the highest rate; and the AB blood type had SjS at the highest rate (Figure 1).
Udifferentiated connective tissue diseases (UCTD): a review of the literature and a porposal for preliminary classification criteria.
Having in mind all this, a retrospective study was performed to analyse the clinical profile of patients having anti-Ro52 in their serum and not any other relevant autoimmune biomarker in order to investigate the possible association between anti-Ro52 antibodies and a milder and more stable form of UCTD. The evolution of the symptoms was evaluated to establish a conclusion regarding its possible prognosis value.
Seminoma carries a good prognosis when treated with metastasis; however, its association with UCTD might alter the prognosis.
The diagnosis of UCTD was based on clinical and serological manifestations suggesting a systemic connective autoimmune disease (arthralgias, Raynaud's disease, ANA reactivity different from antitopoisomerase I and anticentromere, disease duration) [7].
Four patients carried a diagnosis of PM, 5 had UCTD, 2 had systemic sclerosis, and 1 had Sjogren syndrome.

(2,3) These patients have been considered to have diffuse or undifferentiated connective tissue diseases (UCTD).
In addition, anti-ENA antibodies can be detected in undifferentiated connective tissue disease (UCTD) [1].
