This article reports a case of hyperosmolar coma, complicated by acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), with unfavourable outcome. The Authors describe the fulminant outcome of a hyperosmolar comatous patient, 91-year older, culminating in ARDS, focusing their attention on the withdrawal of primary etiology identification and the need of timely therapy, though the fatal prognosis. Sudden arising of the syndrome have suggested dehydration, with prolonged absence of nutrition, causing a very quickly general decay.
