Abstract
Agenesis of the lung is a developmental defect with complete absence or profound hypoplasia of one or both lung : absence of one lung is more common. Absence of both lung is very rare and is incompatible with life. Unilateral or bilateral agenesis of the lung often associated with the skeletal, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal and genitourinary anomalies. H-type tracheoesophageal fistula in approximately 4% of exophageal anomalies. We experienced a case of agenesis of the right lung with H-type tracheoesophageal fistula in a 1day-old male patient. Thereafter we presented the case with brief review of the related literatures.
Key Words: Agenesis of the lung, H-type tracheoesophageal fistula
