INTRODUCTION: Acute Fibrinous and Organizing Pneumonia (AFOP) was first described by Beasely et al. in 2002 as a distinct pattern of lung injury with histological analogy to diffuse alveolar damage, organizing pneumonia and eosinophilic pneumonia. It has been described in all age groups with numerous associations including connective tissue and autoimmune diseases, drugs, occupational and environmental exposures, and less commonly infectious agents. Occasionally, no cause has been found .
