Although pulmonary edema has classically a bilateral and symmetric distribution, unilateral pulmonary edema is less common and may be confused easily with pneumonia. Familiarity with the causes of unilateral pulmonary edema is important for correct diagnosis and patient management. Copyright © 2015 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
