Necrotising pneumonia (NP) is an uncommon condition in children when compared with the adult age group and is even more reported in the new-borns. The first published data on NP in children date back to 1994, but still there is a paucity of data when it comes to the new-borns. Pathologically, it is characterised by inflammation of the pulmonary tissue with consolidation and peripheral necrosis, thereby leading to local destruction of lung tissue and development of multiple small lung cavities. Bronchopleural fistula (BPF) is a rare complication of NP seen in new-born. In this case report, we discuss a case of new-born with severe NP complicated by BPF.
