Can Pulmonary Fibrosis Be Caused By Phlebitis?
Yes, connective tissue disease can cause both.
Hello dear, thanks for your question on HCM.
I can understand your situation and problem.
Pulmonary fibrosis and vasculitis can occur simultaneously.
Vasculitis can include phlebitis.
Connective tissue disease (CTD) causes both these conditions, Pulmonary fibrosis and phlebitis.
Following CTD s can cause both.
1. SLE (Systemic Lupus Erythematosus).
2. Rheumatoid arthritis
So you need to evaluate for above mentioned CTD s.
Hope I have solved your query.
I will be happy to help you further.
Wish you good health.
