Antibiotic resistance is uncommon in paediatric community acquired pneumonia (CAP) in Malaysia. However, with the increased use of antibiotics, there is a risk of penicillin-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae (PRSP) pneumonia which results in antibiotic treatment failure. We report here a case of CAP complicated by empyema, caused by PRSP, which presented as acute respiratory distress in a 19-month-old boy.
