Pulmonary alveolar proteinosis is a rare cause of respiratory distress in neonates. We present a 4 month old infant who presented with progressive respiratory distress since birth and failure to thrive. He was initially treated as a case of diffuse alveolar disease but on open lung biopsy was diagnosed as pulmonary alveolar proteinosis. The child expired at 7 months of age.
