Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation: its role in the survival of a child with adenoviral pneumonia and myocarditis.


We report the case of a 2-year-old child with severe adenovirus type 7 pneumonia and myocarditis who survived after seven days of ECMO. Our patient demonstrates the possible applications of ECMO to pediatric lung diseases and reemphasizes the importance of lung biopsy in screening possible candidates.
