Overview

In pediatrics, Wilson-Mikity syndrome is a rare lung condition that affect low birth weight babies.[1]

It was characterized in 1960.[2]

It is closely related to bronchopulmonary dysplasia, differing mainly in the lack of prior ventilatory support. All the initial patients described with Wilson-Mikity syndrome were very low birth weight infants that had no history of mechanical ventilation and yet developed a syndrome that clinically resembled BPD. Upon the death of some of these infants, autopsies showed histologic changes also similar to those seen in BPD.[3]
