Main Article Content

Abstract

This case report details a rare presentation of spontaneous pneumothorax in a 2-day-old term neonate who developed sudden respiratory distress. Promptly diagnosed via chest X-ray, immediate interventional management with chest tube placement was implemented, resulting in successful resolution of the condition. The report emphasizes the importance of vigilance for spontaneous pneumothorax in neonates, particularly in the absence of predisposing factors like mechanical ventilation or overt lung pathology. Highlighting the critical role of timely intervention, this case adds to the limited but growing literature on the management and outcomes of neonatal spontaneous pneumothorax. It suggests a need for further research into the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms and potential genetic predispositions associated with this condition.
