PMID:  10945068     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Two children with idiopathic pulmonary haemosiderosis are reported. These are the first cases of this disease from Saudi Arabia and highlight the diagnostic problem caused by their presentation as cases of iron deficiency anaemia. The aetiopathogenesis, clinical presentation, diagnosis and management are discussed. The attention of paediatricians is drawn to this relatively rare cause of iron deficiency anaemia.
