Materials and Methods

We searched MEDLINE using the keywords Goodpasture's syndrome, Goodpasture's, case report, and antiglomerular basement membrane disease in various combinations. Articles were reviewed to identify validity of Goodpasture's syndrome. To ensure all the reported cases were found, the references in the articles acquired that were not found in the MEDLINE search were further investigated. After the review process, a total of 85 cases were identified in which Goodpasture's syndrome was present. The information regarding these cases is summarized in Table 1 .[5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29,30,31,32,33,34,35,36,37,38,39,40,41,42,43,44,45,46,47,48,49,50,51,52,53,54,55,56,57,58,59,60,61]
