ABSTRACT: Pulmonary agenesis is a rare anomaly. Seven cases with unilateral pulmonary agenesis were presented at the Park Children's Center for Treatment and Research between 1989 and 1995. Five were boys and 6 had right sided agenesis. All presented in the first year of lie. Four patients had associated anomalies. Two patients had associated anorectal malformations, of these 2, 1 had a radial ray defect and a partial sacral agenesis. One patient had a radial ray defect without any anorectal malformation. Another patient had an intrathoracic right upper limb and absence of ribs on the right side. One patient died of pneumonitis of the solitary lung. Two patients from a neighboring state and a neighboring country are lost to follow-up. The clinical data (including the follow-up of 4 patients) and a review of the literature are presented.
