Detection of Hemosiderin-Laden Macrophages in Bronchoalveolar Lavage Fluid of COVID-19 Patients

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.
