The pulmonary system may be significantly affected by hypothermia. The association between NCPE and hypothermia is controversial. A 59-year-old man with mild hypothermia presented with NCPE after passive external rewarming following accidental immersion in water. The patient's course was uneventful after 48 h, allowing immediate withdrawal of assisted ventilation and supplemental oxygen.
