Özet

A 12-year-old girl of Turkish descent was referred 6 weeks after an influenza A infection because of persistent chest X-ray abnormalities compatible with interstitial lung disease. The clinically suspected diagnosis of pulmonary alveolar microlithiasis (PAM) supported by pathognomonic radiological abnormalities was confirmed by genetic analysis. The clinical presentation of PAM is illustrated by a case and review of the current literature on this subject: you only see what you know.
