Abstract

Pulmonary pneumatocele is an unusual complication of bacteria Pneumonia in the neonatal period. They usually develop during the recovery phase, and generally resolve spontaneously within seeks to months [1], We present a premature newborn that developed a large pneumatocele secondary to staphylococcus aureus pneumonia that was treated successfully with a test tube inserted into the pneumatocele. This resulted in complete resolution of the pneumatocele in four days.
