A 77-year-old man with multiple myeloma (MM) presented with shortness of breath to the emergency department. He also had history of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, chronic pulmonary embolism and nephrectomy due to malignancy 10 years ago. He had been treated for 9 months with lenalidomide because of MM. He diagnosed with adult respiratory distress syndrome due to lenalidomide. We aimed to demonstrate late onset and destructive effects of lenalidomide on the lungs.
