Symptoms of NEHI

Playing

Neuroendocrine hyperplasia in infancy (NEHI) is a respiratory disease that causes the cells that transport oxygen into the bloodstream to overproduce. This hyper-production of cells acts like a surplus of filters in the lungs and prohibits air from efficiently passing through all of the cells to saturate the blood. NEHI expert and pediatric pulmonologist Dr. Robin Deterding provides specifics on the rare lung disease.
