PURPOSE: The purpose of the study is to compare H1N1-induced acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) with ARDS due to other causes of severe community-acquired pneumonia focusing on pulmonary function. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is a retrospective data analysis of adult ARDS patients between January 2009 and December 2010 in an ARDS referral center. Patient characteristics, severity of illness scores, modalities, and duration of extracorporeal lung support were evaluated as well as intensive care unit stay and survival...

Clinical manifestations vary depending upon both the extent of infection and the immune status of the host. Coccidioidomycosis has been reported to involve almost all organ systems; however, pulmonary disease is the most common clinical manifestation. The incidence of coccidioidomycosis continues to rise, and primary coccidioidal pneumonia accounts for 17 to 29% of all cases of community-acquired pneumonia in endemic regions...

BACKGROUND: Community-acquired pneumonia can lead to acute lung failure (parapneumonic ARDS) if the course is very severe. The clinical picture reflects a rapidly progressive and potentially fatal respiratory failure. Only occasional cases in which the clinical courses of community-acquired pneumonia lead to acute respiratory failure have been reported so far. The investigation was based on the observation that very severe progressive forms of community-acquired pneumonia are at present one of the most frequent conditions triggering ARDS...
