Core Tip Acute fibrinous and organizing pneumonia is a rare histological pattern of acute lung injury. The age of the patients was diverse from infant to elderly, and there is still no specific therapy. Although treatments with steroids combined with immunosuppressants have been reported, none of them showed particular benefit, and these treatments always induce serious side effects, especially in patients of advanced age. We herein report an 81-year-old female patient, who was successfully treated with low-dose steroids, and only experienced some minor side-effects. This case report can add a new treatment choice for this disease.
