According to the American Center for Disease Control CDCacute idiopathic pulmonary hemorrhage AIPH refers to a pulmonary hemorrhage episode in a previously healthy infant with no history nor other neonatal diseases that may be considered as the cause.

An interview with the mother revealed breast hemosideroeis formula feeding, no exposure to tobacco smoke, no abnormal humidity at place of residence, availability of drinking water and no remarkable medical family history. When hemoptysis is severe, it can be life threatening, manifesting itself with breathing difficulty, abdominal pain, hepatosplenomegaly, leukocytosis 13 and bilateral alveolar or interstitial opacities in chest x-ray, which can lead to misdiagnose pneumonia Other search option s Alphabetical list.

The IPH etiology is not yet clearly established. Data on incidence is scarce, and most information comes from case reports: No new episodes occurred and, therefore, no further studies were conducted to verify bleeding disorders.

Conventional mechanical ventilation and inotropic support with epinephrine was initiated; after stabilization, he was transferred to the PICU. The physical examination revealed satisfactory general health status, although the patient was pale and had lost weight.

Patients in our series had a satisfactory clinical evolution: Laryngoscopy showed infra-glottal bleeding; the endotracheal tube was changed and conventional mechanical ventilation with high parameters was used. In life-threatening cases or with severe diffuse alveolar hemorrhage, which does not improve with intravenous steroids, the use of intrapulmonary recombinant factor VIIa has been described with good results in small case series Chest x-ray, diffuse alveolar infiltrates.


Some authors have suggested that risk factors for sudden infant death syndrome SIDS may be related to IPH cases, because pulmknar has been found in the airways of infants who died and were diagnosed with SIDS. Extubation was done at day 5, but reintubation was necessary due to laryngotracheitis associated with mechanical ventilation.

On admission to PICU, the patient was hypoxemic with severe oxygenation disorder, poorly perfused and heavy bleeding was seen during endotracheal intubation.

Idiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosis is hemosiderosos disease of unknown etiology and pathogenesis, and is characterized by recurrent pulmonary bleeding, iron defidency anaemia and respiratory failure. Diffuse alveolar hemorrhage may result from immune processes such as vasculitis mediated by neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies, anti-glomerular basement membrane syndrome, connective tissue diseases, or antiphospholipid syndrome.

It has also been described as secondary to drugs and toxics. It is necessary to discard oropharynx and nasal bleeding. The former is still alive hemosiderosis pulmonar the hemosiverosis died after six years follow up.

So it is difficult to conclude whether pulmonary hemorrhage was the cause of death or hemosiderozis marker for some other problem which resulted in death. Chest X-rays usually show unilateral or bilateral infiltrates, therefore, other causes of pulmonary hemorrhage must be excluded, since most of them correspond to systemic diseases.

Management during the acute phase is supportive with mechanical ventilation, packed red blood cell transfusion if anemia is present, hemodynamic support and intravenous steroids. It is seen more often in children under the age of 10, mainly between 1 and 7, and without a clear impact of gender.
