It's absence causes the lungs to fill with fluid and collapse. Surfactant can now be given (and is often given) to babies suffering from this with significant results. ...Read more
Chest xrays: Hyaline membrane disease or "respiratory distress syndrome" is a condition usually affecting children who are born before term. Lack of a lung chemical called surfactant causes it. It has a typical look on chest xray, so nursery and radiology doctors usually make the dianosis by the xray and the prematurity of the child.
