Three patients with bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia are described. Chest X-ray films showed peripheral densities and pulmonary function tests a restrictive pattern. In all three cases transbronchial biopsy was not useful for diagnosis and we point out the importance of an open lung biopsy in order to make the differential diagnosis with other infiltrative lung disease with a different prognosis and therapy.
