A pulmonary alveoli-filling disease, characterized by dense phospholipoproteinaceous deposits in the alveoli, cough, and dyspnea. This disease is often related to, congenital or acquired, impaired processing of pulmonary surfactants by alveolar macrophages, a process dependent on granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor.
