Summary

The clinical and autopsy findings of 5 cases of diffuse alveolar damage (DAD) are presented. The associated conditions were trauma (2 cases), endotoxic shock, spinal cord infarction and complicated major surgery. Attention is drawn to the role of oxygen therapy in the evolution of the lung lesion and an attempt is made to quantify the amount of oxygen in terms of units of toxicity.
