Abstract We describe the use of nitric oxide as an oxygen-sparing strategy in the context of prior bleomycin exposure. A 27-year-old male, previously treated with bleomycin for a testicular germ cell tumour, presented with severe acute respiratory distress syndrome on the second postoperative day following an extensive retroperitoneal dissection. The mechanism of bleomycin toxicity and potential benefits of nitric oxide in this situation are considered.
