Abstract

An 8-week-old infant was admitted to the hospital after an initially normal postpartum course with pronounced shortness of breath. Progressive hypoxia and a loss of consciousness occurred during the computer tomography examination, whereby the massively increased airway resistance hardly allowed ventilation. During a emergency thoracotomy, a bronchogenic cyst which had compressed the left main bronchus, was successfully extirpated.
