Abstract

Diffuse alveolar hemorrhage is a potentially fatal pulmonary disease syndrome that affects individuals with hematological and non hematological malignancies. The range of inciting factors is wide for this syndrome and includes thrombocytopenia, underlying infection, coagulopathy, and the frequent use of anticoagulants, given the high incidence of venous thrombosis in this population. We present a case of a 50 years old female with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia presenting with diffuse alveolar hemorrhage.
