We report on a 49-year-old male patient who suffered from severe herpes simplex (HSV) pneumonia after a fall-from-height injury, causing a circumscript type B aortic dissection.The subsequent occurrence of ARDS required a veno-venous ECMO circuit that was upgraded to a veno-arterial system due to further oxygenation deficits. Following continued respiratory deterioration, the ECMO system already in place had to be complemented by a second veno-arterial line. After the onset of recovery and because of a developing of a disseminated intravasal coagulation, the double ECMO circuit was replaced by a pumpless extracorporeal lung assist system (PECLA). The patient recovered completely under systemic virostatic therapy.
