PMID:  19533504     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Pleural empyema is rarely seen in the newborn period. Here we report the first case of exclusive and successful conservative management of pleural empyema in an extremely low birth weight infant. Chest drainage or percutaneous aspiration was not feasible. Noninvasive treatment might represent an acceptable option in premature infants.
