Sleep-related breathing disorders (SRBDs) are known in patients with chronic respiratory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and interstitial lung disease (ILD). Sleep-related breathing disorders are further classified into obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) disorders, central sleep apnea syndromes, sleep-related hypoventilation disorders, and sleep-related hypoxemia disorders. We describe a case of familial ILD with OSA, sleep-related hypoxemia, and sleep-related hypoventilation.
