OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this article is to review the clinical and imaging features of diffuse pulmonary hemorrhage.
CONCLUSION. Diffuse pulmonary hemorrhage is a life-threatening syndrome associated with a wide variety of underlying pathologic categories. Nonspecific clinical and imaging features pose challenges to promptly diagnosing this condition. Chest radiography commonly shows alveolar opacification, and CT reveals the extent of disease. Integration of clinical, radiologic, laboratory, and pathologic findings facilitates timely diagnosis and etiologic identification.
