ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study of a 38 year old pregnant woman with fever, chills, cough, vomiting and weakness. A nasopharyngeal swab specimen was positive for influenza A (H1N1) virus and treatment started with oseltamivir. However, the patient developed severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Noninvasive positive pressure ventilation (NIPPV) was administered and the patient recovered after a cesarean delivery was performed and the infant was born with no influenza infection.
