Congenital malformations of the lung.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Congenital malformations of the lung are a frequent cause of abnormal chest radiographs in neonates and young children as well as a common cause for recurrent pneumonia in older patients.

Appropriate management of the patient can then be undertaken with a minimum of diagnostic studies and without any delay in treatment.
