A patient presenting with apparent pulmonary edema in whom transient, large increases in systemic arterial, pulmonary arterial, and pulmonary capillary wedge pressures occurred and spontaneously resolved within a few minutes is presented. This appears to lend support to the pressure and volume overload theory of the pathogenesis of neurogenic pulmonary edema that previously has not been demonstrated in humans.
