Abstract

Idiopathic Pulmonary Hemosiderosis is a rare condition, primarily affecting the pediatric population. IPH is characterized by the triad of hemoptysis, iron deficiency anemia, and diffuse pulmonary infiltrates, though not all the symptoms may be seen. Due to the myriad of diseases that present as such, IPH is often a diagnosis of exclusion. Treatment with corticosteroids prevents further episodes of hemoptysis, and improves the anemia. We report on a rare case of IPH in an adult who presented with chronic anemia and shortness of breath.
