Resumen

Se presenta un caso de edema pulmonar unilateral en un paciente con insuficiencia ventricular izquierda. La unilateralidad del edema pulmonar se produjo por disminución de la circulación arterial pulmonar, producida por «arteritis» tuberculosa. Se insiste en las distintas causas productoras de UPE, en la importancia de tenerlas presentes, la tuberculosis sobre sobre todo en nuestro medio, para llevar a cabo el diagnóstico diferencial con la neumonía.
