Abstract:We report a case of idiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosis (IPH) in a 8year old female who presented with anaemia, breathlessness, puffiness of face and grade 4 clubbing. She had been investigated a number of times at multiple hos-pitals and had received multiple blood transfusions considering iron deficiency anaemia. Diagnosis of IPH was sus-pected on basis of clinical history of persistent respiratory distress, hypoxemia, repeated anaemia episodes and diffuse bilateral infiltrates on chest X ray.
