Park, Kang, Kim, Han, and Yoo: A Case of Congenital Bronchial Atresia with Mucocele


Bronchial atresia is a rare congenital anomaly characterized by a bronchocele resulting from a mucus-filled, blindly-terminating segmental or lobal bronchus, and hyperinflation of the obstructed segment of lung. Characteristically, the patient is young and asymptomatic but has an abnormal chest roentgenogram. The only physical finding may be decreased breathing sounds over the affected parenchyma. We experienced a case of bronchial atresia with mucocele in adult. So we report it with a review of the literature.
