STAT3 Gain of Function: A New Kid on the Block in Interstitial Lung Diseases

Abstract : A 5-year-old girl with failure to thrive and multiorgan disease was referred to our center for chronic hypoxemia. On evaluation, we noted tachypnea (respiratory rate 35/min), supraclavicular retractions, median diurnal oxygen saturation as measured by pulse oximetry (Sp O 2) = 91.7% at rest, percentage of time below Sp O 2 90% at 26% during sleep, and clubbing. A computed tomography scan showed diffuse interstitial lung disease (Figure 1). Spirometry was normal (TLC, 83% of predicted; FEV 1 , 83% of predicted; FEV 1 /FVC, 98%; and forced expiratory flow, midexpiratory phase, 142% of predicted), but it was not possible to measure DL CO .
