Abstract

Combination of pulmonary hypoplasia and pulmonary artery agenesis is one of the rarest respiratory diseases. This case is about a 3 year old asymptomatic female child presented with congenital scoliosis, on further investigation she was found to have left pulmonary hypoplasia with left pulmonary artery agenesis. Though the patient may be asymptomatic for the age and findings might be incidental, our case report signifies the importance that when a patient presents with chest wall deformities it is worth to investigate further to rule out the other associated congenital anomalies as happened in our case.
