Abstract

Mutations in surfactant-associated genes cause childhood diffuse lung disease. Mice lacking surfactant protein D develop lung disease with age. However, we identified no novel surfactant protein D gene (SFTPD) coding or splice region variants in 73 unrelated children with diffuse lung disease from a cohort enriched for genetic surfactant dysfunction.
