Background: Neonatal subcutaneous emphysema of scalp (SES) with air leaks is rare. Case characteristics: Neonate presented with SES in addition to pneumothorax and pneumomediastinum. Observation: SES resolved after the chest was drained to treat pneumothorax. Outcome: Neonate made full recovery. Conclusion: Neonatal SES may be associated with air leaks post-resuscitation, which has not been reported.
