Objectives: High-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) parenchymal patterns have been used to predict prognosis in patients with interstitial lung disease (ILD). In idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, the fibrosis score (i.e. the combined extent of reticulation and honeycombing) has been associated with worse survival. This study aimed to identify HRCT patterns and patient characteristics that can predict poor prognosis in rheumatoid arthritis-related ILD (RA-ILD). Methods: We retrospectively analysed 65 patients with newly diagnosed RA-ILD from 2007 to 2016...
