February Case of the Month

Clinical History: A young man in his 20s presented with fever, nausea, dyspnea and dry cough for 5 days. On examination, he was febrile and hypoxic on room air. Chest CT showed bilateral ground-glass opacities with areas of consolidation and some degree of subpleural sparing (Figure 1). Laboratory work-up showed leukocytosis, elevated ESR and elevated C-reactive protein. The patient was well prior to onset of these symptoms, with no significant chronic medical issues. There was no history of HIV/AIDS or other immunosuppression. The patient “smoked weed” daily and also vaped tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) frequently, the last episode being 7 days prior to onset of his symptoms. He was initially treated for presumed pneumonia but after a lack of response to treatment (and negative serologies and cultures), bronchoscopy with bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) and transbronchial lung biopsies was performed. The BAL fluid revealed predominantly macrophages (Figure 2) without large or coarse vacuoles. Cultures of the BAL fluid were negative. Images from the transbronchial lung biopsy are shown in Figures 3-6
