Pulmonary alveolar microlithiasis with pleural calcification and nephrolithiasis

Chest. 1990 Jul;98(1):245-6. doi: 10.1378/chest.98.1.245.

Abstract

A case of pulmonary alveolar microlithiasis (PAM) with pleural calcification and nephrolithiasis is reported. The significance of peripheral white lines, a rarely reported observation on chest roentgenogram in PAM, is discussed. Extrapulmonary calcification in multiple sites raises the possibility of PAM being a systemic disorder.
