Differential Diagnosis in a Patient with Bilateral Pulmonary Infiltrates, Hypoxemia and Hemoptysis

 
Abstract:

This post is also available in: enEnglish slSlovenščina (Slovenian)

Eighteen years old male with bilateral pulmonary infiltrates, hypoxia and hemoptysis was diagnosed with Goodpasture syndrome. We present a retrospective analysis of the clinical decision making that lead to the diagnosis and the analysis of the treatment course. Retrospective analysis puts into question the accuracy of the diagnosis and thereby also questions the indi­cation for several months of treatment with methylprednisolone and cyclophosphamide.
