Abstract

Pulmonary alveolar proteinosis (PAP) is a rare diffuse lung disease in the pediatric population. There are currently few cases documenting hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis as a cause for secondary PAP. We describe an ex-preterm child with secondary hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis, complicated by PAP and hypoxemic respiratory failure.
