Reports of the syndrome of recurrent pulmonary hemorrhage with glomerulonephritis (Goodpasture's syndrome) have emphasized the fulminant course of the disease. Two cases are presented with studies designed to explore a possible immune mechanism. The first case was a 21-year-old woman with pulmonary hemorrhages followed by acute glomerulonephritis who expired on the twenty-fourth hospital day. The second case was a woman who recovered from pulmonary hemorrhages at 30, from pulmonary hemorrhages and glomerulonephritis at 39, and finally died at 43 of recurrent pulmonary hemorrhages and acute glomerulonephritis. Sections of the patients' kidneys and lungs were examined for fluorescence after being stained
