Abstract

A 36-year-old woman presented with left chest pain and frequent symptoms of upper respiratory infection. Chest roentgenograms revealed a left pneumothorax and apical bulla, and hyperlucency in the left pulmonary field. She was diagnosed with congenital bronchial atresia associated with a left spontaneous pneumothorax. A thoracoscopy-assisted left superior segmentectomy was performed. There was no recurrence of the pneumothorax or symptoms of recurrent upper respiratory infection at the 1-year follow-up examination. Bulla formation was believed to have resulted from emphysematous changes in the peripheral lung due to congenital bronchial atresia. The pneumothorax may have occurred due to rupture of the bulla.
