Adult respiratory distress syndrome in neutropenic leukemia patients

Abstract

Seven episodes of adult respiratory distress syndrome, occurring in leukemic patients with longstanding (average 11 days) and severe neutropenia (<0.1×109/l) are described. Pathologocial and clinical data give further support to the view that the complement-neutrophil pathway is not the only mechanism in generating clinical ARDS in leukemia patients.
