[Interstitial pneumopathy in subjects treated with amiodarone].

[Article in French]


Five cases of interstitial fibrinogenic pneumopathy in addition to the 17 cases already published have considerably increased the suspicion that amiodarone might be responsible for this type of lung lesion. Moreover, it has been firmly established that 10 (56%) of 18 patients with fibrinogenic interstitial pneumopathy had taken the drug. Amiodarone therefore seems to play an important role in the genesis of iatrogenic pulmonary fibroses. These, however, are rare, even though they probably remain undiagnosed in a substantial number of cases.
