We had experienced a case of congenital lobar emphysema in a 3months old male infant. Chief symptoms included tachypnea, respiratory difficulty, cyanosis. Chest X-ray or chest CT scan revealed extensive emphysematous changes of the right upper and middle lobes, compression of the right lower lobe and shifted of mediastinum to the left side. This condition was appeared in the absence of infection and foreign body in the bronchus and its failure to respond to conservative treatment. This patient was treated by the right upper and right upper and right middle lobes pneumonectomy. A brief review of literature was made.
