5 patients in whom the adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) developed after bone-marrow transplantation (BMT) for chronic myeloid leukaemia are described. Donors in all cases were siblings who were matched for all major-histocompatibility-complex determinants. All patients were neutropenic to varying degrees at the onset of respiratory symptoms. Histological evaluation in all patients at necropsy showed diffuse alveolar damage with no evidence of intrapulmonary neutrophil sequestration… CONTINUE READING
