Idiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosis (IPH) is a rare disease characterized by anemia, hemoptysis and recurrent alveolar hemorrhage. The combination of IPH and celiac disease (CD) is extremely rare. We report a 9-year-old boy with Lane-Hamilton syndrome, co-occurrence of pulmonary hemosiderosis with CD. This presentation is unique presentation because he has also retinal pigmentation.
