Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report a case of Goodpasture-like syndrome developing in a patient who was treated with D-penicillamine for the diffuse form of systemic sclerosis. This unusual pulmonary-renal syndrome has been described on rare occasions in patients receiving D-penicillamine. This complication appeared to be uniformly fatal unless treated with aggressive immunotherapy. We review the cases reported to date in the literature and describe the clinical characteristics, therapy, and outcome of this group of patients.
