Abstract

There are very few cases of neonatal empyema described in medical literature. There is no standard treatment protocol currently available. We report 3 neonates with late onset sepsis and thoracis empyema. Two had one sided and one had bilateral thoracis empyema. All 3 of them grew staphylococcus aureus on culture. All the three neonates required initial chest tube drainage along with administration of antibiotics. They responded to the treatment.
