Résumé : A patient with miliary tuberculosis developed the adult respiratory distress syndrome. The diagnosis of tuberculosis was not made, especially because of several negative bacteriological examinations and the initial radiological aspect. Patient died of respiratory failure complicated with disseminated intravascular coagulation. This reinforces the hypothesis of a physiopathological relationship between the 2 syndromes. The necessity of anti-tuberculous therapy should be stressed in every situation of adult respiratory distress syndrome of unknown origin.
