Pulmonary agenesis is a rare congenital disease that is associated with many other congenital anomalies. We present the case of a patient, with right pulmonary agenesis and transmediastinal lung herniation, who presented with a spontaneous pneumothorax. This congenital anomaly and the treatment for this rare presentation is discussed in detail.
