A case of infantile exogenous lipoid pneumonia with an unusual complication managed by modified whole lung lavage

Abstract
Exogenous lipoid pneumonia (ELP) is a known complication of lipid administration through either the nasal or oral route. ELP in paediatric patients is usually managed by discontinuing lipid administration and supportive care, including respiratory support
and the use of antibiotics for secondary bacterial infection. The other modalities that remain controversial include the use of corticosteroids and clearing lipids by whole lung lavage. We report a 2-month-old infant who presented with pneumonia and
whose further history revealed exposure to ghee over a month period while visiting her grandparents in the south region of Saudi Arabia. The patient was later diagnosed as having ELP and was successfully managed with modified whole lung lavage till weaned off from oxygen. Unfortunately, the case was complicated by nontuberculous Mycobacterium chelonae, and the patient died despite maximum intervention.

Key words: Pneumonia; Lipoid pneumonia; Infant; Bronchoscopy; Lavage; Ghee.
