Abstract

The case of a premature infant with bacteriologically proved klebsiella pneumonia in the first wk of life is reported. The clinical course was complicated by the early formation of pneumatoceles and subsequent recurrent pneumothoraces. Treatment consisted of antibiotic therapy and chest tube drainage. Satisfactory clinical recovery, growth and psychomotor development were noted at 1 yr of age, despite the persistence of a pneumatocele in the right lung.
