Abstract

Although COP is idiopathic by definition, it is important to investigate each diagnosed case for potential causes, such as iatrogenic from radiation or known causative medications [1], connective tissue diseases, inflammatory bowel disease, malignancies, history of lung transplant or bone marrow graft. OP may present weeks to months before other signs of connective tissue disorders and therefore the patient should undergo serologic testing for these diseases. [6] In the case presented, the specific etiology was unyielding and so remains cryptogenic in nature. This patient’s symptoms quickly improved following the use of steroids and tolerated tapering off completely without relapse one year out from initial diagnosis.
