Se describe un caso de bronquiolitis obliterante con neumonía organizativa que cursó clínicamente con infiltrados pulmonares cambiantes, un patrón funcional respiratorio restrictivo de poca intensidad, un lavado broncoalveolar sin neutrofilia y buena respuesta a los corticoides. Se discute la necesidad de practicar biopsia pulmonar para su diagnóstico.

We report on a case of obliterative bronchiolitis with organizative pneumonia that presented clinically with changing pulmonary infiltrates, a mildly restrictive respiratory function pattern and no neutrophilia in the bronchoalveolar lavage. A good response to steroid therapy was obtained. The need for pulmonary biopsy in order to establish the diagnosis is discussed.
