INTRODUCTION: Diffuse alveolar hemorrhage (DAH) is a rare (incidence of 2-5%), but potentially lethal complication in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) with a mortality rate of 40-92%. Due to the rarity of this condition, treatment is based on case series and reports. Here we discuss the successful treatment of a patient with DAH and severe hypoxemia as the initial presentation of SLE.
