Abstract

Congenital bronchial atresia (CBA) is an infrequent pulmonary anomaly characterized, in general, by a blindly terminating bronchus, mucoid impaction, and hyperinflation of the peripheral pulmonary parenchyma. We herein report an adult case of lobar bronchial atresia who showed no hyperinflation of the peripheral pulmonary parenchyma.
