The article discusses J. Rangel-Moreno and colleagues' paper "Inducible bronchus-associated lymphoid tissue in patients with pulmonary complications of rheumatoid arthritis." Rangel-Moreno and colleagues studied lung biopsies from patients with a variety of interstitial diseases. Patients with rheumatoid arthritis and Sjogren's syndrome were found to have more and larger lymphoid areas.
