Abstract

We report an unusual vasculitic syndrome in a long-term survivor of autologous bone marrow transplant. Clinical and pathologic studies revealed a cutaneous and pulmonary leukocytoclastic vasculitis complicated by recurrent pulmonary hemorrhage. Serologic studies revealed an elevated anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody titer. The vasculitis has been successfully controlled with prednisone, cyclophosphamide, and trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole.
