Acinetobacter baumannii is an uncommon but important cause of severe community-acquired pneumonia (CAP), especially in tropical/subtropical regions and in patients with underlying lung disease. Here, we present a case of acute fulminant CAP in a young female patient with underlying cystic lung disease which presented with secondary spontaneous pneumothorax. The patient went into acute respiratory failure and recovered completely with treatment.
