Pulmonary agenesis is an uncommon congenital defect resulting from failure of the primitive lung bud to develop into a functioning lung. This arrested development can result in a spectrum of lung abnormalities, from lung hypoplasia to complete lung absence. We present a case of complete lung agenesis in an infant who presented with respiratory distress.
