INTRODUCTION: Diffuse alveolar hemorrhage (DAH) is a potential complication of antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA)-associated vasculitis (AAV). The clinical course of these patients varies making triage difficult. Herein, we describe an AAV case that presented with DAH and progressed to respiratory failure. Recent literature will be applied to outline clues to predict respiratory failure in this patient and treatment recommendations will be discussed.
