The case history is presented of a 25 years old female with cough and dyspnoea on exertion for 31/2 yrs, an advanced pulmomary alveolar microlithiasis (PAM) with an atypical chest radiograph. The importance of family study is stressed as two of her sisters were found to have the same disease at an earlier stage with classic radiographs, clearing doubts about diagnosis in the index case. We think apical bullae in cases of PAM to be associated with advanced disease and a poor prognostic sign.
