Abstract

Pulmonary hemosiderosis is a rare disease of unknown aetiology, whose clinical, pathogenetic and prognostic aspects are still open to discussion. The authors report a case of pulmonary hemosiderosis in a 2 year and 3 months old girl. Peculiar features of this case include antibody deficiency (which may contribute to the pathogenesis of the disease) and severe and protracted melena. Fetal outcome, despite several therapeutic trials, confirms the poor prognosis of pulmonary hemosiderosis.
