    We describe the occurrence of two anatomically separate and histologically distinct endocrine tumours of bronchus and pancreas in a 64 year old woman with biopsy and serology proven Goodpasture's syndrome. The association between anti-glomerular basement membrane antibody disease and multiple endocrine tumours has not been reported previously; possible pathogenetic mechanisms are discussed.
