Abstract

A 16-year-old patient with Fanconi's anemia developed pre-leukemia and pulmonary infiltration which was found upon autopsy to be pulmonary alveolar proteinosis. The question whether the pulmonary alveolar proteinosis was due to the marked leukopenia and an eventual defective phagocytic ability of the leukocytes is raised.
