Hydrocortisone and ulinastatin are anti-inflammatory agent. We hereby report the case of a patient of sputum-positive miliary pulmonary tuberculosis that developed adult respiratory distress syndrome with septic shock. The patient was treated with anti-tubercular drugs, antibiotics, inotropes, vasopressors, hydrocortisone, and ulinastatin. From this, we want to emphasize that hydrocortisone and ulinastatin can be one of the treatment options in refractory shock patient not responding to conventional treatment but requires randomized controlled trial to confirm the effectiveness of this combination.
