Pulmonary alveolar hemorrhage in a pregnancy complicated by systemic lupus erythematosus.

PMID: 16035585 (view PubMed database entry)

Kecia Gaither, Kelley Halstead, Tina C Mason,

We present a case of a pregnant patient with fulminant systemic lupus erythematosus complicated by alveolar hemorrhage, a rare and potentially fatal manifestation of lupus. It typically presents in the context of a pulmonary-renal syndrome. Active lupus nephritis with hypoalbuminemia is a major risk factor for alveolar hemorrhage. Treatment with high-dose corticosteroids is the mainstay of therapy.
