The pulmonary vasculitities are discussed, as is antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, ankylosing spondylitis, and the impact of osteoporosis on pulmonary fuction. Toxicity and monitoring of immunosuppressive therapy used in systemic autoimmune diseases is reviewed, as is lung transplantation in autoimmune diseases.
