We evaluated four children with rounded densities on their chest radiographs in whom the final diagnosis was presumed to be lower respiratory tract infection. The differential diagnose between round pneumonia and a neoplastic process is difficult to make. In this report, all of cases of round pneumonia have resolved clinically and radiographically with antibiotic therapy.
