Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report the case of a 13 yr old, asymptomatic girl with agenesis of the right pulmonary artery. In the context of a tuberculosis survey in her school, an X-ray examination disclosed a decreased volume of the right lung. Ventilation and perfusion scans and digital substraction angiography established the diagnosis.
