Diffuse alveolar haemorrhage (DAH) secondary to anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA)-associated vasculitis (AAV) is a rare life-threatening condition presenting with severe respiratory failure. The management of AAV-related DAH consists of remission induction immunosuppressive therapy, which requires time to be effective, with significant fatality rates despite appropriate treatment. Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) can support gas exchanges providing the time necessary for… CONTINUE READING
