Living-donor lobar lung transplantation for pulmonary alveolar proteinosis in an adult: Report of a case
TLDR
A 43-year-old woman with pulmonary alveolar proteinosis (PAP) was successfully treated with livingdonor lobar lung transplantation (LDLLT) and was functioning well without oxygen therapy 1 year after transplantation, what appears to be the first report of LDLLT for PAP in an adult.
Primary pulmonary alveolar proteinosis: a case report and a review of the literature.
TLDR
The first adult Saudi male patient with primary pulmonary alveolar proteinosis is reported, followed by an updated literature review of disease etiology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, natural history, and treatment.

Recurrent alveolar proteinosis following double lung transplantation.
TLDR
A case of recurrent alveolar proteinosis following double lung transplantation is presented and it is shown that patients with this condition have an increased risk of developing central giant cell granuloma.
The pulmonary alveolar proteinosis in granulocyte macrophage colony- stimulating factor/interleukins 3/5 beta c receptor-deficient mice is reversed by bone marrow transplantation
TLDR
Recombination Activating Gene-2 mutant donor bone marrow reversed the pathology in the lungs to the same extent as whole bone marrow, establishing that certain lung disorders, if of cell-autonomous hematopoietic origin, can be manipulated by bone marrow transplantation.
Involvement of granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor in pulmonary homeostasis.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that GM- CSF is not an essential growth factor for basal hematopoiesis and an unexpected, critical role for GM-CSF in pulmonary homeostasis is revealed.
