Abstract

Following treatment with amiodarone, a patient developed weight loss, fatigue and severe myopathy, without respiratory symptoms. A solitary lung infiltrate, impaired thyroid and liver function tests, and leukocytosis were evident. Biopsies from the lung lesion, liver, and bone marrow revealed foam cells. All these signs and symptoms subsided following cessation of amiodarone therapy. It is demonstrated that amiodarone may induce a localized lung lesion rather than diffuse pulmonary disease.
