We describe a disease, started in a female young adult patient as an apparent pulmonary siderosis, followed nine years later by an extracapillary proliferative nephritis, which developed to uremia in a few months. Later an intra-myocardial vasculitis, responsible of heart failure, appeared. Immune-histochemistry and serological tests exclude a disease mediated by anti-GMB antibodies, and pathologic features suggest a vasculitis mainly affecting lungs and kidneys.
