We reported two case studies of meconium aspiration syndrome (MAS) with pulmonary hemorrhage in which we applied surfactant lavage and replacement. Surfactant lavage and replacement of MAS with pulmonary hemorrhage appears to be effective and safe adjunctive therapy. The relatively small replacement doses of surfactant required may be attributed to surfactant lavage followed by surfactant replacement. We suggest that surfactant lavage and replacement of MAS with pulmonary hemorrhage should be further investigated by a randomized controlled trial.
