Materials and methods
A 13-year-old with interstitial lung disease due to Antisynthetase Syndrome and pulmonary arterial hypertension underwent emergent bilateral lung transplantation after a rapid clinical decline.
We present the clinical, radiographic, and histological findings of a child with interstitial lung disease due to Antisynthetase Syndrome.
