1. Inflammatory myopathy, bronchiolitis obliterans/organizing pneumonia, and anti-Jo-1 antibodies--an interesting association.
We report an interesting association of inflammatory myopathy, characterized pathologically as dermatomyositis, with bronchiolitis obliterans/organizing pneumonia and anti-histidyl-tRNA synthetase (Jo-1) antibody. The relations of different types of pulmonary involvement to inflammatory myopathy and antisynthetase antibodies are discussed.

3. Fulminant Mycoplasma pneumoniae pneumonia.
The frequency of fulminant pneumonia due to Mycoplasma pneumoniae is relatively rare despite the high prevalence of Mycoplasma species infection in the general population. We recently encountered such a case and have reviewed the English-language literature on cases of M pneumoniae pneumonia that have resulted in respiratory failure or death. Due to host fac
