We describe a case of fulminant onset, rapidly progressive-interstitial lung disease (RP-ILD) with anti-ARS antibodies (anti-PL-7). The patient was successfully treated with nintedanib in addition to intensive immunosuppressive therapies, including intravenous cyclophosphamide. Nintedanib has just been approved for treatment of progressive fibrosing ILD, but to date, no reports of RP-ILD treated with nintedanib have been published. This case report may advance discussions regarding the use and timing of nintedanib in treating RP-ILD.
