Pulmonary hemorrhage. An uncommon cause of pulmonary infiltrates in patients with AIDS.




 

Chest. 1994 Dec;106(6):1891-4. Unique Identifier : AIDSLINE MED/95079834

We describe two patients with AIDS who developed new diffuse pulmonary infiltrates during the course of their hospitalization. In both cases, the infiltrates were attributed to pulmonary hemorrhage complicating an existing condition rather than representing a new pulmonary process. Identification of pulmonary hemorrhage in these patients allowed for discontinuation of treatment with empiric medications and continued appropriate supportive care.
