• We present a case of postictal pulmonary edema, with serial radiologic and arterial blood gas assessment as well as pulmonary function testing. A review of pertinent experimental and clinical studies and discussion of possible pathophysiologic mechanisms follows, stressing the differences in diagnostic and therapeutic approach between this entity and other forms of hypoxemic respiratory failure.
