Mixed Connective Tissue Disease - MCTD
Mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD) is a systemic, autoimmune connective tissue disease. Clinically, patients exhibit varied combinations of features common to other autoimmune diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), polymyositis, rheumatoid arthritis, or systemic sclerosis (scleroderma). MCTD is often referred to as an overlap syndrome.
