INTRODUCTION: Lymphoid interstitial pneumonia (LIP) is an uncommon disease characterized histopathologically by alveolar interstitial infiltration with lymphocytes, plasma cells and other lymphoreticular elements along with involvement of interlobular septa and sub-pleural areas. It presents in approximately 3% HIV positive patients and is considered an AIDS-defining illness most frequently diagnosed at autopsy. We report the case of a 49-year-old non-smoker female presenting with dyspnea and productive sputum. Imaging studies showed bilateral ground-glass opacities. Histopathologic examination confirmed LIP. She was found to be HIV positive on subsequent testing.
