In the last few years, there has been a significant increase in younger generations using vaping devices as an alternative to smoking. Social media and celebrities have played a major role in its increased popularity. Many consumers believe it to be a relatively safer and healthier choice. We present a case of a 21-year-old, female, non-smoker with vaping exposure who developed severe acute lung injury. Her workup was negative for any other cause of acute lung injury.
