We describe a case of a 32-year-old bone marrow recipient with granulomatous Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia. The histopathologic appearance of P. carinii infection may vary in different patient populations, and diagnosis may be difficult with conventional diagnostic modalities. This case highlights the presence of atypical P. carinii pneumonia in the setting of bone marrow transplantation.
