Abstract: Idiopathic pulmonary haemosiderosis (IPH) is a disorder characterised by the triad of haemoptysis, diffuse parenchymal infiltrates on chest roentgenogram and iron-deficiency anaemia. It is a diagnosis of exclusion and the prognosis is bleak despite the varied management options. We report a case of IPH occurring in a child who presented at four months of age with cough, wheeze, haemoptysis and pallor and whose symptoms are currently controlled with high-dose inhaled budesonide and low-dose oral prednisolone.
