Bronchiolitis obliterans organising pneumonia is a clinicopathological syndrome characterised by indolent course of flu-like illness followed by cough, dyspnoea and fever, and responds well to steroid treatment. We describe a 76-year-old woman who presented with a short three-day history and progressed rapidly to respiratory failure. She was successfully treated with high-dose steroids.
