Ceelen-Gellerstedt syndrome, also known as idiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosis (IPH), is a rare disease characterized by recurrent pulmonary alveolar hemorrhages associated with a classical clinical triad of hemoptysis, unexplained iron defi ciency anemia, and diffuse pulmonary infi ltrates on imaging. We present a case report of Ceelen-Gellerstedt syndrome in an elderly 69-year-old Indian male patient, which is an unusual case as the condition is more common in children and young adults. Diagnosis was suspected on high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) scan, which revealed diffuse areas of consolidation, ground glass opacities, and septal thickening with perihilar and basal predominance and further workup with bronchoscopy and bronchoalveolar lavage helped to confirm the diagnosis.
