A patient with Parkinson's disease, initially treated with bromocriptine and subsequently with cabergoline, developed progressive pleuropulmonary abnormalities during the latter therapy. These lesions even worsened for some weeks after interruption of cabergoline, which may possibly be related to the prolonged action of this drug. Thus cabergoline may cause similar pleuropulmonary abnormalities to bromocriptine.
