Having a case with typical clinical features and specific serological markers can help the practitioner to reach a definitive diagnosis, and accordingly, provide proper management plan. However, it may not always be the case when confronting systemic diseases, particularly Autoimmune Connective Tissue Diseases (AICTD). Conditions characterized by the presence of clinical and serological manifestations suggestive of an autoimmune connective tissue disease, but without eventual progression to a full blown specific AICTD is not unusual in clinical practice.
