The authors report a case of pulmonary fat embolism syndrome without identifiable cause that was seen on chest radiographs and high-resolution computed tomography as diffuse ground-glass attenuation, particularly in nondependent portions of both lungs. The radiologic findings were shown on open-lung biopsy to represent diffuse pulmonary hemorrhage caused by fat embolism.
