INTRODUCTION: Pulmonary renal syndromes are rare clinical entities that can present with diffuse alveolar hemorrhage (DAH) and glomerulonephritis. They are often a result of anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA) associated vasculitides (AAV). Typically, alveolar involvement in pulmonary renal syndromes is multi-lobar and bilateral. We describe a case of crescentic glomerulonephritis presenting with hemoptysis and focal alveolar involvement limited to the left lung.
