We report a patient who had two episodes of bleomycin lung toxicity with a good clinical response following corticosteroid therapy. The first episode followed treatment with 120 units of bleomycin and was characterized by cough and dyspnea. The second resulted in ARDS following a surgical procedure that used an FIO2 level of 0.33.
