Acute lung injury is a common critical condition with complex disease and rapid disease progression, which can lead to acute and severe respiratory impairment and even life-threatening conditions. In the process of acute lung injury caused by endotoxin, the pathogenic factors include direct and indirect damage to the lung. In the pathogenesis, inflammatory response, oxidative stress, iron death and coagulation disorder influence each other, and work together to form a vicious cycle. In order to better understand the pathogenesis of acute lung injury and understand the whole process of the disease, this paper makes a preliminary discussion on the pathogenesis of endotoxin-induced acute lung injury in domestic and foreign journals in recent years, so as to provide a basis for further study of endotoxin-induced acute lung injury.
