Our understanding and treatment of rheumatologic disease have undergone a revolution over the last 20 years that has resulted in markedly improved patient outcomes and quality of life. However, the area of pulmonary manifestations in the rheumatic diseases has historically been poorly understood and under-recognized, with the real potential for significant morbidity and mortality. Over the past 10 years, however, there has been a groundswell of clinical interest and inquiry through the formation of a consortium of diverse investigators from the fi elds of pulmonary medicine, rheumatology, pathology, and radiology, which has led to preliminary but important insights into these disorders. As such, we felt the time was right to dedicate a fi rst-of-its- kind text to highlight and summarize our present knowledge, therapies, and potential future advances in the field of lung disease and the rheumatic diseases. This text focuses on clinical manifestations and management with a practical, case-based approach, and virtually all chapters are co-written by specialists from the fields of rheumatology and pulmonary medicine, as we try to address and appeal to a broad clinical audience that may be caring for such patients. We hope this text serves as a useful clinical resource for our readers as we move forward in this fascinating and clinically challenging intersection between autoimmunity and pulmonary disease. 
We would like to thank all of the chapter authors of this text for their excellent contributions and, of course, we thank our patients. We also wish to thank our publisher, Springer Science + Business Media, and our editors (Kristopher Spring and Liz Corra) for their diligent efforts to complete this project. 

The spectrum of systemic rheumatologic disease (often termed connective tissue disease) is characterized by autoimmune-mediated organ dysfunction, and the lungs are a frequent target. There are numerous pulmonary manifestations associated with connective tissue diseases, and all patients with rheumatologic disease are at risk of developing associated lung disease. Pulmonary Manifestations of Rheumatic Disease covers the comprehensive management of rheumatologic lung disease, which requires a multi-disciplinary approach and is optimized by active engagement by rheumatologists working closely with pulmonologists and other specialists. The book offers a practical reference using a case-based approach for practicing clinicians in the ongoing assessment and understanding of rheumatologic lung disease, and presents the science and pathophysiology underlying rheumatologic lung diseases. The first text of its kind specifically dedicated to describe diverse, commonplace, and challenging aspects of rheumatologic lung diseases, Pulmonary Manifestations of Rheumatic Disease serves as an invaluable tool for the practicing clinician.
