Acute pneumonitis with diffuse alveolar haemorrhage is potentially fatal. When it occurs in a patient of systemic lupus erythematosus, the primary disease itself may be responsible for it; rather than any complicating infection or metabolic/physiological derangement. Diagnosis of primary pulmonary involvement by systemic lupus erythematosus can only be made on open lung biopsy coupled with immunofluorescent and/or ultrastructural studies. Early diagnosis of acute pulmonary complications in systemic lupus erythematosus patients is essential as specific management is reported to improve the chances of recovery.
