Abstract

We describe neonatal spontaneous pneumothorax associated with transient tachypnea of the newborn in siblings of two families. Familial spontaneous pneumothorax is extremely rare in neonates. Was our observation just an incidental finding, or is there a familial predisposition to spontaneous pneumothorax?
