The following information is NOT intended to endorse any particular medication. While these reviews might be helpful, they are not a substitute for the expertise, skill, knowledge and judgement of healthcare. Based on strict textbook criteria for disease. Our bodies don’t always read textbook and generally the connective tissue or systemic rheumatic diseases are diagnosed clinically. Overlap syndrome or undifferentiated connective tissue disease is the term often applied to patient in this category.

Undifferentiated connective tissue disease UCTD is a term suggested by LeRoy 30 years ago to denote autoimmune disease that does not meet criteria for established illnesses such as systemic lupus erythematosus, scleroderma, dermatomyositis, Sjogren’s syndrome, vasculitis, or rheumatoid arthritis.

    I see a lot of mixed info so I’d love to hear experiences, explanations, like anything and everything that anyone knows about this. So if I do have UCTD mine presents itself very similarly to lupus and RA with some Sjorgens similarities too. Ive found no foundation and almost no awareness on this disease at all.. I'm no medical expert and have no training but I think the term undifferentiated connective tissue disease (UCTD) is similar to use of the term idiopathic for a diagnosis that's not specific. I don’t see much awareness for this disease or much information. there's only 2 discussions actually on UCTD and no one seems to really know what it is. from my understanding if I'm diagnosed with UCTD it's because I have Lupus and RA symptoms with some blood test markers of both but the tests aren't conclusive enough… Jump to this post Hi @bunnysammy — I usually go to Google Scholar (https://scholar.google.com/) when I'm trying to find some in depth information or studies on a medical diagnosis or research papers.
