Abstract

Amiodarone-induced pulmonary toxicity has been described mostly in patients receiving large doses of the drug over prolonged periods. In this report, we describe the early onset of acute pulmonary toxicity leading to acute respiratory distress syndrome after a short course of amiodarone treatment following middle-lobe non-small-cell lung cancer resection.
