Abstract

A patient experienced pulmonary edema associated with salicylate intoxication. As proved by dynamic vascular measurements, the pulmonary edema was of noncardiac origin. Recovery followed therapy with diuretics and positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP). The etiology of this form of pulmonary edema is unknown, but it is a potentially fatal complication of salicylate intoxication.
