Clinical case of the course of congenital alveolar-capillary dysplasia of the lungs at a newborn

Year: 2016, volume 12 Issue: №2 Pages: 162-164
Heading: Pediatrics Article type: Case report
Authors: Gavrilova E.S., Borisova А.А., Bykova Е.М., Pozgalyova N.V., Panina O.S., Chernenkov Yu.V.
Organization: Saratov State Medical University
Summary:

The article describes a clinical case of a child with an alveolar-capillary dysplasia of the lungs — a rare cause of pulmonary hypertension at a newborn. This pathology is of particular interest from a clinical point of view as it rarely occurs in the clinical practice of a neonatologist. It should be noted that the prenatal diagnosis of this disease is of significant difficulty. The authors found it necessary to highlight the cause of development, the clinical presentation and the methods of diagnostics of alveolar-capillary dysplasia of the lungs.
