Abstract

Late diagnosis of tuberculosis (TB) may result in the development of severe acute respiratory failure. High mortality rates with conventional ventilation have been reported. Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) may represent an effective alternative treatment. We report a case of complicated pulmonary TB in a man who successfully underwent 3 months of ECMO. © 2014 The Union
