A 3,430-g male term newborn was delivered spontaneously to a 25-year-old mother after an uneventful pregnancy and discharged 1 day after birth. The newborn presented with cough and respiratory insufficiency on postnatal day 12, concurrently with upper respiratory tract infection of his older brother. The patient’s physical examination on admission was normal except for wheezing and desaturation. His chest radiograph revealed para-cardiac consolidation (Fig. 1a), and he was admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) where he received inhaler salbutamol, oxygen and antibiotic therapy for 10 days.
