INTRODUCTION: The differential diagnosis of hypoxia and diffuse pulmonary infiltrates, in a seemingly healthy young man is broad. Infection (due to typical, opportunistic, viral, and fungal sources) or pulmonary edema (cardiogenic and non-cardiogenic) are common etiologies, but when clinical evidence for these conditions fails to accumulate, unusual causes should be entertained. This is a case of a patient whose pulmonary diagnosis was revealed through his kidneys.
