Abstract
Pneumatoceles are the air-filled cysts that can develop within the lung parenchyma. In neonates, pneumatoceles are mainly attributed to ventilator-induced lung injury, especially in premature infants with respiratory distress syndrome. Other than ventilator induced lung injury, reported causes for the formation of pneumatoeles in neonatal intensive care unit patients also include hydrocarbon ingestion, congenital cysts and trauma. An infectious etiology has been suggested in some case reports of pneumatoceles in neonates in association with bacterial pneumonia from Klebsiella pneumoniae, Enterobacter cloacae, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Pneumococcus and Serratia marcescens. However, there is a lack of data on the clinical characteristics, possible associations and outcomes of pneumatoceles in neonates in the present era of gentle ventilation and surfactant use.
