Authors describe a case of pulmonary masses and estensive skin pigmentation: “blue-gray syndrome” occurred in a patient in amiodarone therapy who presented with progressive dyspnea, cough, and fever. The diagnosis was suspected by detection of a high attenuation of the pulmonary masses on the nonenhanced chest computed tomography (CT) and lots of foamy macrophages in the bronchoalveolar lavage fluid. Relief of respiratory symptoms and radiological improvement was achieved when amiodarone treatment was stopped.
