Abstract

Massive pulmonary infiltration by leukemic cells resulting in respiratory symptoms is a rare complication of acute leukemia. We report the findings in a patient with acute myelomonocytic leukemia presenting with acute onset of fever, dyspnea, and nonproductive cough, in whom the diagnosis of pulmonary invasion by leukemic cells was made by cytochemical analysis of bronchoalveolar cells recovered by lavage.
