INTRODUCTION: Goodpasture's disease is classically thought to be a syndrome of both pulmonary hemorrhage and glomerulonephritis.

In patients with diffuse alveolar hemorrhage (DAH), a high index of suspicion for Goodpasture's disease must be maintained, regardless of the presence of glomerulonephritis, as untreated disease can have catastrophic consequences.
