Follow-up and Outcomes

Cytologic studies from the bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) revealed macrophages, neutrophils, and lymphocytes, with no malignant cells to indicate possible cancer. Our institution's laboratory did not have the capability of detecting vitamin E acetate, THC, or THC metabolites in the BAL. During our patient's ICU stay, all of his blood culture and sputum culture results remained negative.
