Evoluiu com agravamento do quadro clínico até início de tratamento de suporte, quando apresentou rápido restabelecimento. Radiografia de tórax do dia da internação demonstrou infiltrado difuso bilateral e à tomografia observou-se imagem em vidro fosco difuso. Objetiva-se demonstrar alterações tomográficas nesta síndrome.<br>A choking patient was admitted with dyspnea, cyanosis, and loss of consciousness, which initially improved after suction of the airways. The patient presented worsening of the clinical parameters until the introduction of supportive treatment, after which she rapidly recovered. Chest x-ray taken on day of hospitalization showed bilateral diffuse alveolar filling pattern, and computed tomography showed ground glass areas.
