Abstract

Bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia (BOOP) is a clinico-pathological entity with well-defined diagnostic criteria, which can be idiopathic or produced by a variety of biological processes. We describe the occurrence of BOOP in three children, one with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia and two with acute promyelocytic leukaemia. In the three patients, BOOP developed 10-20 days after a course of therapy with cytosine arabinoside and anthracyclines. The possible relationship between the small conducting airway lesions, lung toxic reaction to the drugs and/or nonidentified infectious agents are discussed.
