Pulmonary alveolar proteinosis secondary to Pneumocystis jiroveci infection in an infant with common variable immunodeficiency.Indian J Pediatr. 2014 Sep; 81(9):929-31.IJ
The authors report an infant with common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) with Pneumocystis pneumonia who developed secondary pulmonary alveolar proteinosis (PAP). This is the youngest infant reported to develop PAP secondary to Pneumocystis infection in an immunocompromised state. He was effectively managed with anti-microbials, frequent lung toilet, optimized mechanical ventilation, and supportive care.
