Swyer-James syndrome is an uncommon disease with unknown aetiology. It is generally discovered on a chest radiograph as increased translucency involving one hemithorax because of diminished vascular markings. Pulmonary vascularization on the affected side is greatly reduced leading to radiological translucency. Myocardial bridging describes an angiographic entity, which is any degree of systolic narrowing of a coronary artery observed in at least one angiographic projection. It is a congenital anomaly of the coronary artery and may occur in 5-12% of the human population. We report a patient suffering from chest tightness and with diagnosed Swyer-James syndrome also having myocardial bridge.
