abstract

  • Bronchiolitis obliterans and organizing pneumonia (BOOP) is a syndrome that has been associated with a variety of underlying disorders, including infection, collagen vascular diseases and toxic fume inhalation. Rarely, however, BOOP has been associated with radiation- or chemotherapy-induced pulmonary toxicity. Over the past 3 years, several case series have reported BOOP in the unique setting of radiation in breast cancer patients. This study describes our experience with this newly recognized syndrome and a review of the English-language literature on this syndrome.
