A causal relationship has been proposed for the development of Goodpasture's syndrome and hydrocarbon (gasoline) exposure in man. Infusion of antiglomerular basement membrane antibody into rats subjected to gasoline inhalation did not result in linear binding to alveolar basement membranes suggesting that the endothelial barriers remained intact despite administration of near lethal doses of gasoline.
