Abstract

Pulmonary surfactant is an important part of her host defence against respiratory infections. Bacterial pneumonia in late preterm or term newborn infants oftens leads to surfactant deficiency or dysfunction, as surfactant is either inactivated or peroxidated. Studies of animal models of pneumonia and clinical case reports suggest that exogenous surfactant might be beneficial to infants with bacterial pneumonia.
