Pulmonary hemosiderosis, a disease of unknown etiology, is considered to be uncommon in children and rare in adults. The first description was given by Virchow in 1851, but it was not until 80 years later, in 1931, that Ceelen published the first clinical report. Clinical, roentgenologic and pathologic correlations were presented in 1944 by Waldenström1 and in 1948 Wyllie et al.2 published a review of the subject. Browning and Houghton3 mentioned three adult cases and added three of their own, while Soergel,4 in a more recent survey, culled 12 authenticated adult cases from the literature.
Numerous authors have noted that
