Pulmonary vascular air embolism is a rare and, universally, almost a fatal complication of positive pressure ventilation in newborn infants. Here, we report a case of this unusual complication in a very-low-birth-weight infant who showed the clinical and radiological features of this complication along with pulmonary hypoplasia and massive hydrops. The possible pathogenesis has been discussed and a brief review...

Septic pulmonary embolization is an uncommon condition in which the clot or fibrin matrix, contaminated with micro-organisms, lodge in the pulmonary arterial tree, leading to infarction, suppuration and other complications. The septic emboli reach the lung from a variety of sources, including acute suppurative pelvic thrombophlebitis, infective endocarditis involving tricuspid and pulmonary valve, osteomyelitis, suppurative lesions of the neck, infected...

Ran Lee, Il Soo Ha, Hae Il Cheong, Yong Choi
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1996;39(5):722-726.   Published online May 15, 1996
Antiphospholipid syndrome is a thrombotic disorder and the serologic marker of the syndrome is antiphospholipid antibody(lupus anticoagulant, anticardiolpin antibody, or both). In a 13-year-old girl who presented with dyspnea, pulmonary embolism and femoral vein thrombosis were demonstrated by lung scan and abdominal ultrasonography. She had 3 out of 11 criteria for the diagnosis of SLE, such as thrombocytopenia, positive antinuclear antibody, low C3...
