Pneumothorax is one of the major causes of respiratory distress in newborns. This disorder may develop in newborns who have lung disorders such as respiratory distress syndrome, meconium aspiration syndrome or resuscitation. The diagnosis is based on chest radiography after physical examination in newborns with respiratory distress. The treatment is oxygen theraphy or tube thoracostomy. We report a case of bilateral pneumothorax in a newborn who was given high pressure oxygen due to intubation tube.
