Lethal occult pulmonary hemorrhage in drug-induced thrombocytopenia.

Abstract

A patient with drug-induced thrombocytopenia who died because of massive pulmonary hemorrhage is described. The patient had a clinical picture of acute respiratory distress resembling pulmonary edema, but there was no hemoptysis. Chest x-ray films showed granular density in the pulmonary fields, and the electrocardiograms revealed a pattern of acute biatrial enlargement. The diagnosis was confirmed at autopsy.
