Resumen

SANCHEZ D, Ignacio et al. Pulmonary fibrosis in childhood: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2005, vol.133, n.1, pp.82-88. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872005000100011.

Interstitial lung diseases are uncommon in children, and can be idiopathic or secondary to known causes, sharing common pathological findings. We report a girl with progressive respiratory insufficiency secondary to interstitial pneumonia and pulmonary fibrosis, with risk factors such as bronchopulmonary dysplasia and respiratory infections (respiratory syncytial virus and suspected Mycoplasma pneumoniae), that may have had an additive effect. Nasal bi-level Positive Airway Pressure was used in the last period of her disease. She died due to global respiratory failure at the age of 14 years (Rev Méd Chile 2005; 133; 82-88)

Palabras clave : Nasal continuous positive airway pressure; Pulmonary fibrosis; Respiratory insufficiency.
