Abstract
Congenital Lobar Hyperinflation is an overinflation of one or more than one lobes of the lung and is caused by an abnormal development of broncho-pulmonary segment. We report a case of a 2-month-old female who presentedin outpatient department with complaints of fever, cough and difficulty in breathing. This case was seen in January, 2018. Congenital Lobar Hyperinflation was diagnosed on chest x-rays and Computed Tomography (CT ) scan. Immediate surgical excision (lobectomy) of the affected lobe was conducted.
