Alveolar capillary dysplasia with misalignment of pulmonary veins

An Alveolar capillary dysplasia with misalignment of pulmonary veins is a disorder that affects lung formation and blood vessels. In ACD/MPV, other abnormalities of the blood vessels in the lungs also occur. The veins that transport blood from the lungs to the heart are incorrectly positioned and may be mistakenly bundled with arteries that carry blood from the heart to the lungs. The muscle tissue in the arteries' walls may be overgrown, resulting in thicker artery walls and a narrower channel. New abnormalities are present in infants with ACD/MPV. Infants with ACD/MPV typically experience respiratory distress within a few minutes to a few hours after birth. Infants with ACD/MPV have not been expected to live past one year of age, and the majority of ill infants live just a few weeks.
