As a result of improved therapies and technology, including the use of surfactant replacement, the features of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) have changed, and a "new BPD" is emerging that is substantially different from the classical form of the disease. As the pathogenesis of BPD is evolving, so are other features of the disorder, including radiologic features. We describe varicose bronchiectasis with a bulbous appearance in a 6-year-old child with a complicated course including BPD during the neonatal period.
