SOUZA, Rodrigo Canellas de et al. Spontaneous regression of pulmonary alveolar proteinosis: a case report. Radiol Bras [online]. 2012, vol.45, n.5, pp. 294-296. ISSN 0100-3984. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-39842012000500013.
The authors report the case of a 21-year-old female patient with a six-month history of progressive dyspnea, dry cough, and weight loss. High-resolution computed tomography revealed a "crazy‑paving" pattern with areas of focal sparing. The patient underwent transbronchial lung biopsy which confirmed the diagnosis of alveolar proteinosis. Two years later, without treatment, a marked improvement in pulmonary opacities was observed.
