Abstract

BPD is a multifactorial condition, where the degree of prematurity plays an important role. Intrauterine environmental factors, genetics, inflammation, oxygen toxicity and ventilator treatment in acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome are also of importance. Much is still uncertain concerning the etiology, and BPD is also seen in infants with no or minimal ventilatory support. As a consequence, present strategies for prevention or treatment of BPD have so far been of only limited success.
