We report here, the case of a six-and-a-half-month-old boy investigated for persistent respiratory distress and homogeneous opacity in the left upper lobe. Echocardiography revealed a giant ductal aneurysm compressing the left pulmonary artery and upper lobe division of the left bronchus. Computerized tomography angiogram delineated the exact anatomy and prompt surgical resection provided a successful cure to this lesser known entity.
