The authors describe a case of congenital lobar emphysema in child at the age of 45 days and discuss the clinical manifestations as well as the features of histological diagnostic of the disease. This case is of particular interest because of the rarity of the pathology as well as the fact that congenital lobar emphysema developed as a result of combination of two anomalies of the bronchi: mucosal folding and muscular layer hypoplasia.
