Persistent pulmonary interstitial emphysema is a rare disorder of pre-terms seen even in non-ventilated neonates. The condition needs to be differentiated from other neonatal lung anomalies requiring early surgery, because there is a role for conservative management of these babies. CT scan findings are typically helpful in diagnosis.
