Abstract

Round pneumonia is a disease commonly recognized in the pediatric age group, especially under the age of 8 years. Streptococcus pneumoniae is the most common agent causing this characteristic type of pneumonia. We herein report a case of a 6-year-old boy with only mild cough and low-grade fever who was then diagnosed with round pneumonia due to Chlamydia pneumoniae. He had multiple round opacities in the right lower lung field, and the symptoms subsided soon after oral administration of antibiotics.
