Pulmonary edema is typically caused by filling of alveoli in the lungs by fluid leaking out of the blood. Edema, in general, means swelling. This typically occurs when fluid from inside blood vessels seeps outside the blood vessel into the surrounding tissues, causing swelling. Pulmonary edema is the term used when edema happens in the lungs.
