Diffuse alveolar hemorrhage (DAH) disease is a rare but acutely developing condition that may occur after general anesthesia, if not diagnosed and treated on time, could be life-threatening. Orthognathic surgeries, frequently performed for functional and esthetic correction, are generally composed of a young population in their twenties with no other disease. The aim of presenting this case report was to describe the etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of DAH to emphasize the importance of timely diagnosis.
