INTRODUCTION: Acute fibrinous and organizing pneumonia (AFOP) is a rare form of idiopathic interstitial pneumonia (IIP), which is now increasingly more recognized and has recently been added to the American Thoracic Society/European Respiratory Society international multidisciplinary classification of IIP. It is still regarded as a rare histologic pattern and is not yet classified as a new separate IIP entity. [1] Questions remain whether it is merely a histologic variant of existing IIPs or occurs in relation to other diseases such as hypersensitivity pneumonia or connective tissue disorder. It may also represent a histologic pattern that occurs in the clinical spectrum of diffuse alveolar damage and organizing pneumonia, and may reflect a tissue sampling issue. We report our experience with a case of AFOP treated successfully with corticosteroid and mycophenolate mofetil.
