AbstractAbstract PDF
A 81-year-old man was referred for respiratory failure by emergency medical technicians. He admitted at intensive care unit for ventilator treatment. Several hours before admission, he took sildenafil 100 mg for erectile dysfunction without prescription. The episodes of hemoptysis occurred several hours later. Computed tomography revealed multifocal diffuse ground-glass attenuation in both lungs. And the more we performed bronchoalveolar lavage, the more the color of it was turned into red. We treated him with empirical antibiotics and tranexamic acid, and hemoptysis was stopped in one day after admission. But in the 5th admission day, he died from sepsis combined with pneumonia caused by Acinetobacter baumannii abruptly.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Pulmonary alveolar proteinosis is a rare disease of unknown etiology characterized by the remittent or progressive accumulation of lipid-rich proteinaceous material within the alveolar space in the absence of inflammatory response. The removal of lipoproteinaceous material from the alveolar can the only means of effectively treating the progressive hypoxemia in pulmonary alveolar proteinosis. Bronchoalveolar lavage using a double-lumen endotracheal tube is an accepted modality for treatment of pulmonary alveolar proteinosis. We had utilized sequential bronchoalveolar lavage successfully for the treatment of a 51 year-old male patient with pulmonary alveolar proteinosis. There was no hypoxemia and unstable hemodynamics during the procedure. We conclude that the procedure will be safely performed by careful monitoring.
