At an early stage, AM depletion may alleviate neutrophil-induced alveolitis
by reducing inflammatory responses.

Accumulation of PQ induces significant damage and destruction to the pulmonary epithelium, followed by dysfunction of gas exchange and lack of surfactant, resulting in histopathological alterations, such as alveolitis
, and clinical manifestations, including ALI and ARDS .
In this case, disseminated infection including miliary tuberculosis and fungal infection, drug-induced interstitial pneumonia, intravenous talc granulomatosis, extrinsic allergic alveolitis
, and pneumoconiosis needed to be differentiated; however, a definite diagnosis was made by the histological finding of non-necrotizing epithelioid granuloma with multinucleated giant cells (Figure 1b).
