Abstract

Pulmonary underdevelopment malformations are rare. Ipsilateral facial defects and lung aplasia especially on right side are reported in literature. We present an adolescent with right cleft lip and palate incidentally detected to have aplasia of left lung with absent pulmonary artery after two general anaesthesia procedures. Computed tomogram is a good non invasive technique for a definitive diagnosis.
