: : My step father has a bad lung disease where as we have been told by his doctor in Spokane that he has boop. He talked so fast I could not write down the full name. He said it's where the red blood cells are being eaten up by this infection. Can any one give me the full name of B O O P and what it stands for. Also what might be the normal treatment for this type of infection? Thanks

: Larry, no wonder you couldn't write it down. BOOP stands for bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia (BOOP).
