A 21-Year-Old Man with Systemic-Onset Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis, Cough and Progressive Dyspnea


Primary or nonobstructive, endogenous lipoid pneumonia is a rare clinical entity usually associated with an underlying systemic disease. The present report describes a case involving a 21-year-old man with systemic-onset juvenile rheumatoid arthritis who developed primary endogenous lipoid pneumonia. Multiple treatment regimens were attempted; however, definitive management was only achieved through double-lung transplantation.
