Syndrome thoracique aigu: une complication grave de la drépanocytose

Published in Revue médicale suisse. 2018, vol. 14, no. 623, p. 1844-1848
Abstract The acute chest syndrome is a frequent complication in patients with sickle cell disease. It results from the occlusion of pulmonary capillaries and complex pathophysiological mechanisms. The diagnosis of an acute chest syndrome includes bilateral infiltrates on x-ray, along with fever or respiratory symptoms. The appropriate medical treatment includes hydration, analgesics, oxygen, broad-spectrum antibiotics that cover atypical bacteria and transfusions or exchange transfusion.
