A 14-year-old male who introduced with again ache was discovered to have large cystic lesions on CXR and emphysematous modifications on chest CT. He underwent proper lobectomies and histopathology of the resected lesions demonstrated large bullous emphysema with placental transmogrification. This has not been beforehand described in a pediatric affected person. We describe his medical findings, pulmonary operate assessments, and post-operative course. The pathogenesis of placental transmogrification stays unsure. As that is the primary reported pediatric case, we suggest that big bullous emphysema with placental transmogrification ought to be thought-about within the differential analysis for cystic lesions within the pediatric age group.
