Abstract

Interstitial pulmonary infiltrates in Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia are a rare clinical entity. Although pulmonary involvement may be suspected on clinical grounds, final diagnosis requires lung biopsy. In this case, lung tissue was obtained by means of a transbronchial biopsy during fiberoptic bronchoscopy. The importance of an early diagnosis of the pulmonary infiltrates with regard to prognosis and prolongation of life is discussed.
