Rheumatoid Arthritis can lead to Pulmonary manifestations as well. These may include Pulmonary nodules, bronchitis obliterans, pleural effusions, pneumothorax or pulmonary fibosis (most commonly after taking methotrexate), these are all involved in rheumatoid lung disease.

Also Rheumatoid Arthritis + rheumatoid lung disease in a patient with Pneumoconiosis is known as Caplan's Syndrome

He did not say that RA causes pneumoconiosis.
He just said that pneumoconiosis and RA if they occur together, they call it Caplan syndrome.
