Accidental Hydrocarbon fluid ingestion is common in children. We report a case of accidental ingestion of motor oil fuel - diesel by a previously healthy 3-year-old female child resulting in bilateral chemical pneumonitis. Extensive pneumonic air space consolidation in all lobes of both lungs were seen only through computed tomography of the chest. Patient received antibiotics, bronchodilators, steroids and symptomatic and supportive care without any mechanical ventilator support. After 11 days patient's symptom had subsided and discharged. On follow up after 2 weeks there was marked resolution of the initial symptoms.
