A case of progressive bilateral upper lobe Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia in a patient receiving aerosolized pentamidine is presented. This is a recently recognized pattern in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome on aerosolized pentamidine. Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia must be considered as a possibility when this select subset of patients presents with this atypical upper lobe pattern.
