Atrial Myxoma Complicating The Course Of ARDS: A Case Report (preprint)

Abstract: We report a case of a 42 year-old with community acquired pneumonia and hypoxic respiratory failure. Thus, intubated and shifted to intensive care unit (ICU) for ventilator support on (acute respiratory distress syndrome) ARDS protocol. Then, all of sudden his condition deteriorated. Thus, bed side echocardiography was done by the intensivist, which showed a big myxoma causing obstruction to the mitral flow with good systolic function. That can explain the reason for pulmonary edema and the deterioration which happened. He was extubated successfully and then transferred to Mater hospital for surgical removal of the tumour. He was discharged home few days later
