About this work
This is a plain chest x-ray from a 5-year-old child with Macleod's syndrome (Swyer-James syndrome). There is hypovascularization of the left lung compared to the normal right lung (indicated by the left lung appearing much darker). This child had pneumonia at the age of 18 months, and had poor lung growth after that time. See record number W0048121 for a CT scan of the same child.
