Undifferentiated Connective Tissue Disease

Download Patient Education

Undifferentiated connective tissue disease, or UCTD for short, is a systemic autoimmune disease. This means that the body s natural immune system does not behave normally. Instead of serving to fight infections such as bacteria and viruses, the body s own immune system attacks itself. In UCTD, autoimmunity may cause the immune system to attack specific parts of the body resulting in a variety of problems.
