Reports of acute naphtha (a petroleum distillate) intoxication, particularly those containing treatment and toxicological data, are poorly verified in the literature. Systemic steroids have not usually been advised for routine management, but no previous studies have been reported on the effects of corticosteroid inhalations. In this study, two critical pediatric patients with chemical pneumonia due to naphtha ingestion have been reported who were effectively managed with nebulized budesonide.
