PMID:  717316     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Two infants had pneumococcal pneumonia and bacteremia, complicated by pneumatocele formation. The pneumatoceles appeared during the recovery phase and were indistinguishable from those associated with staphylococcal pneumonia. Complete resolution occurred in both patients. Pneumatoceles occur in pneumonias caused by varied agents; therefore, determination of the cause is imperative for appropriate therapy.
