Detection of Hemosiderin-Laden Macrophages in Bronchoalveolar Lavage Fluid of COVID-19 Patients
Is COVID-19 pneumonia Iron Induced Pulmonary Disease?
This was also observed in a acute adult T-cell leukemia/ lymphoma patient. The appearance of iron overload was never determined, but the course is remarkably similar to COVID. The patient died of respiratory failure. Aortic stenosis and doxorubicin-induced myopathy during the treatment of ATLL were considered to be the causes of heart failure, although cardiac hemosiderosis was diagnosed by heart muscle biopsy.
