Abstract

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a syndrome identified as acute respiratory failure and is characterized by wide spread infiltrates on chest radiograph, impaired oxygenation, and noncardiogenic pulmonary edema. This syndrome is identified very uncommonly during neonatal period. We experienced a case of ARDS in a 3-day old fullterm neonate who had had the sign of pulmonary edema. He was improved with the treatment of mechanical ventilation, but pulmonary interstitial emphysema and periventricular leukomalacia were complicated.
