    I was trying to look something up for you that would work but I am stuck on the retinoic acid part. Isn't that something that is used as a topical treatment for the treatment for acne? Do you mean more like a postop pneumonia of sorts? Sorry if I am misunderstanding, nit's just that now I am curious myself.

    Another name for that is Acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) Differentiation Syndrome and you would use 205.0 with a fifth digit designating if it is without mention of remision, in remission or in relapse. I researched it and found it by googling the Pulmonary RAS and found it was same as APL.
