Abstract: The causes of raised intrapleural tension in the neonate are discussed and reference is made to 10 children treated for this condition in 1984-1985. There were 10,000 live births at St. Luke's Hospital during this time with an early neonatal death rate of 8.9 per 1,000. There were 7 babies who suc- cumbed to raised intrapleural tension.
