The article describes a case of neurogenic pulmonary edema in a female patient presented with progressive dyspnea that began after a right middle cerebral artery infarction. The patient had no history of loss of consciousness or obvious aspiration. The basis for the diagnosis of neurogenic pulmonary edema is discussed. The neurogenic pulmonary edema resolved two days after the patient was admitted to hospital. She was discharged to a nursing home two weeks later.

    Introduction: Vasculopathy of the large vessels commonly occurs in sickle cell disease, and as a result cerebral infarction is a well characterized complication of this condition. However, spinal infarction appears to be rare. Spinal infarct is infrequent in the non-sickle cell population as...
