A case of rheumatoid pneumonitis with mild arthritis



A case of rheumatoid pneumonitis with mild arthritis



Japanese Journal of Chest Diseases 44(12): 1024-1029



A 75-year-old [human] male with probable RA was admitted to our hospital because of pneumonia. Chest X-ray revealed right middle and bilateral lower lobe infiltration. When physical findings were considerably improved by antibiotic therapy, reticular shadow appeared in chest X-ray, and increased progressively. He died of respiratory failure at the 40th da of admission. Autopsy revealed diffuse interstitial pneumonia, which was considered rheumatoid pneumonitis. The clinical course of this case is discussed.
