The role of noninvasive positive pressure ventilation (NIPPV) in adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is controversial, in contrast to its well established benefits in other types of respiratory failure, especially acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and cardiogenic pulmonary oedema. We report a case of ARDS caused by Mycoplasma pneumoniae in a 70 year old man, treated with NIPPV in addition to standard medical therapy and analyse current evidence regarding the role of NIPPV in patients with ARDS.
