Abstract

A high percentage of systemic sclerosis (SSc) patients develop interstitial lung disease (ILD) during the disease course. Recent data have shown that lung ultrasound (LUS) can assess ILD by the evaluation of B-lines, the sonographic sign of pulmonary interstitial involvement. Our aim was to establish the prognostic value of B-lines in a large number of SSc patients.
