The clinical course of a patient is described who experienced respiratory insufficiency as the primary manifestation of immunoblastic lymphadenopathy. Respiratory symptoms preceded the enlargement of lymph nodes, improved spontaneously at first and then after steroid therapy. Subsequently these symptoms reappeared concurrent with lymph node enlargement. Hypergammaglobulinemia was noted with marked elevation of polyclonal immunoglobulin M.
