Abstract: The authors report a case of umbilical venous catheter malposition with air in the portal venous system in a preterm neonate. Initially, the hypothesis of necrotizing enterocolitis was considered, but the newborn progressed with no finding of disease and the air disappeared at follow-up radiography. The differential diagnosis of such a finding can avoid unnecessary clinical treatments.
Apresentamos um caso relacionado a cateter umbilical venoso mal posicionado, associado à presença de ar no sistema portal, em um recém-nascido prematuro. A hipótese de enterocolite necrosante foi considerada inicialmente, porém o recém-nascido evoluiu sem achados da doença, tendo o ar desaparecido em radiografia de controle. O diagnóstico diferencial deste achado evita condutas clínicas desnecessárias.
