Acute interstitial pneumonia or diffuse alveolar damage is uncommon as an adverse reaction to carbamazepine therapy. We report the case of a 36 yr old woman, who developed respiratory failure after auto-intoxication with carbamazepine. Analysis, including bronchoalveolar lavage and lung tissue biopsy, suggested diffuse alveolar damage due to carbamazepine.
