A case report Case Report of Idiopathic Pulmonary Haemosiderosis in a Child with recurrent chest infections
AbstractIdiopathic Pulmonary Hemosiderosis (IPH) is a rare condition, usually occurring in children and teenagers. The classic presentation is of haemoptysis, iron deficiency anaemia and diffuse pulmonary infiltrates. We report a case of IPH in an 8 year old boy, who presented with recurrent episodes of fever, cough and respiratory infections without any trigger since childhood.
