Pneumatoceles are rare complications of pulmonary tuberculosis in children. We present 2 cases in infants of disseminated tuberculosis complicated by pneumatoceles with different evolution. This complication should be considered if worsening of respiratory symptoms occurs after initiating anti-tuberculous treatment. Treatment of pneumatoceles is usually conservative and surgical treatment should be used in patients with giant cysts which cause respiratory distress.
