Correct Answer

The correct answer is C.
Goodpasture syndrome is characterized by antiglomerular basement membrane antibodies directed against antigens in glomerular and pulmonary alveolar basement membrane. These patients can present with pneumonitis and hemoptysis, although often only vague pulmonary symptoms such as a dry cough are reported. Wegener’s granulomatosis also has pulmonary and renal involvement, but antiglomerular basement membrane antibodies are not seen.
