A Case of Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis Undergoing Whole Lung Lavage in Combination with Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation

Pulmonary alveolar proteinosis (PAP) is a rare disease whose etiology is not completely known and is characterized by deposition of surfactant proteins and phospholipid-rich acid Schiff (PAS) (+) material in alveoli and bronchioles. One third of the patients die because of progressive hypoxemia and secondary infections while a small proportion does not respond to treatment and subsequently fibrosis develops.
