Fatal acute fibrinous and organizing pneumonia in a child with juvenile dermatomyositis.

Abstract

Acute fibrinous and organizing pneumonia, a recently described form of diffuse acute lung injury, sometimes affects adults with inflammatory myopathy. We describe a child with juvenile dermatomyositis who had development of acute fibrinous and organizing pneumonia. There does not appear to be a successful method of treatment, particularly in severe cases with respiratory failure.
