We report the case of a 25-year-old woman in the second trimester of pregnancy with acute respiratory distress syndrome associated with miliary tuberculosis. Delivery of the baby by caesarean section at 24 weeks gestation resulted in an immediate and sustained improvement in respiratory function and maternal survival. We believe this to be the first report suggesting a role for caesarean section, performed with the aim of an improvement in maternal respiratory function, at such an early point in pregnancy.
