pulmonary hemosiderosis

pulmonary hemosiderosis
the deposition of abnormal amounts of hemosiderin in the lungs, due to bleeding into the lung. The hemosiderin is found mainly in macrophages in the air spaces, but also in the interstitium. It is seen in any condition, such as severe congestive heart failure, in which repeated hemorrhages into the lungs occur.
