A case of right unilateral pulmonary interstitial emphysema in a compromised premature infant was managed by right selective bronchial occlusion with a favorable outcome. Occlusion with a Rashkind catheter occurred on day 8 and was well-tolerated. The balloon was deflated 10 hours later and no recurrence was observed. Right occlusion is easier than left selective intubation and seems to be the best method for treatment of unilateral interstitial emphysema in infants in extremely poor conditions.
