INTRODUCTION: Acute fibrinous and organizing pneumonia (AFOP) is a rare interstitial pneumonia histologically characterized by intra-alveolar fibrin deposits. First described in 2002, it can be associated with conditions such as collagen vascular diseases and hypersensitivity pneumonitis.Patients present with acute to subacute non-specific symptoms of cough, dyspnea and fever;imaging findings show lobar consolidation and ground glass opacities, which are seen in other interstitial pneumonias.Given this, diagnosis of AFOP remains challenging.Timely diagnosis is crucial as acute presentation is associated with a rapidly progressive and potentially fatal course, with patients requiring ventilatory support.We report a unique case of idiopathic AFOP, diagnosed with transbronchial lung biopsy.
