Follow-up to pulmonary infiltrates

This is the 68 y/o man post-ABVD for Hodgkin's described below. He had a bronch this week: bal was cloudy but not purulent or bloody; smears and stains were negative for any organisms, no increase in Eos, no giant cells. TBBx revealed diffuse alveolar damage with edema, an inflammatory infiltrate, no organisms, no lymphoma and changes were consistent with Bleo toxicity. He is still on ABTx and quite hypoxic so we are planning on pulsing him with Solu-medrol.
