Recently, there has been an outbreak of vaping-induced lung injuries ranging in severity. We report 3 previously healthy male patients, who presented with acute respiratory failure with a recent history of electronic cigarette use, ultimately diagnosed with lipoid pneumonia. All 3 patients received intravenous high-dose, pulse corticosteroids for short duration with dramatic improvement. Copyright © 2020 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
