A Japanese woman who developed dyspnea on effort and systemic edema at the age of 21 died of respiratory failure at age 33. She had no smoking history, air pollution exposure, or alpha 1-antitrypsin deficiency. Her father had also died of respiratory failure at the age of 30. This disorder was suspected to be hereditary.
