Neonatal spontaneous pneumomediastinum is a rare phenomenon which is observed in case of respiratory distressed, meconium stained and meconium aspirated neonate. In certain state, air can leak from the ruptured alveoli into the pulmonary interstitium and movement of this air along the vascular structures may result in pneumomediastinum. We experienced a case of spontaneous pneumomediastinum, in a 3 day-old male infant (43+5 wks gestational age) who was delivered in meconium stained state. The review of the literature was made briefly.
Key Words: Spontaneous pneumomediastinum.
