Abstract

Author(s): Gholamreza Bahoush*, Masoumeh Jafari and Elham Zarei

Organizing Pneumonia (OP) is a histopathological condition characterized pathologically by the inflammatory reactions in the bronchoalveolar wall and lumen with a multidimensional etiological feature. This phenomenon may be appeared as idiopathic or secondary to different pathological conditions such as toxic, immunologic, inflammatory, drug-related, in combination with some infectious pulmonary problems (such as pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia or PJP), even malignant conditions. Identifying the etiological origin of OP for appropriately management is very important especially in the background of infection sources. Herein, we described a rare case of OP in the background of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) that was finally managed by the therapeutic approach for PJP. We in fact faced with a case of OP in the background of ALL that was successfully managed and improved by antiPJP treatment protocol.
