Pulmonary agenesis is an uncommon congenital anomaly resulting from failure of pulmonary development beyond the carina. Unilateral lesions constitute 70% of cases; most patients present in the neonatal period with respiratory distress. We report an infant with unilateral pulmonary agenesis and Goldenhar anomalad and review the literature to emphasize that unusually affected infants may have no initial respiratory problems but require delivery in a tertiary unit as they may require thorough investigation because associated anomalies are common. In addition, long term follow up is required.

Keywords: Goldenhar syndrome; pulmonary agenesis
