Abstract

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is an inflammatory form of lung injury in response to various clinical entities or inciting events, quite frequently due to an underlying infection. Morbidity and mortality associated with ARDS are significant. Hence, early recognition and targeted treatment are crucial to improve clinical outcomes. This article encompasses the most common infectious etiologies of ARDS and their clinical presentations and management, along with commonly encountered infectious complications in such patients.
