Abstract

MALCON, Maura Cavada et al. Unilateral pulmonary agenesis. J. bras. pneumol. [online]. 2012, vol.38, n.4, pp. 526-529. ISSN 1806-3713.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1806-37132012000400016.

Pulmonary agenesis is a rare congenital anomaly. We report the case of an 8-year-old boy with left lung agenesis, without any other congenital malformations. When the patient presented symptoms, including cough, wheezing, and dyspnea, with no clinical improvement after a period of 30 days, imaging studies were conducted and the diagnosis was made.

Keywords : Congenital abnormalities; Respiratory tract diseases; Bronchoscopy.
