Pneumoperitoneum in the newborn is usually a surgical emergency resulting from gastroint-estinal perforation. However, pneumoperitoneum can occur secondary to a pulmonary air leak which progresses from the mediastinum to the retroperitoneum by way of perivascular spaces and then to the peritoneum following rupture. We have observed this phenomenon in three ventilated newborn. A brief review of the related literatures was also made.
