Resumen

TORO G, Juan Sebastián; MEJIA G, Mauricio  y  DUARTE M, Diana. Congenital bronchial stenosis, the role of imaging in the diagnosis: A case report. Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2014, vol.20, n.2, pp.64-67. ISSN 0717-9308.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-93082014000200006.

This article describes the case of an infant under 2 months old, who at 15 days of age presented stridor and respiratory distress, a chest X-ray was performed which reported the presence of a hyperinflation of the right lung field. A fiberoptic bronchoscopy (FBO) was performed which resulted normal and a ventilation/perfusion gammagraph showed a right lung hypoplasia. The infant was treated with additional oxygen and respiratory therapy without clinical. In order to obtain a pre-surgical vascular map, a multislice CT angiography and virtual bronchoscopy were performed, documenting a right bronchial stenosis produced by a fold of the bronchial wall and with valve effect which produced a secondary hyperinsufflation of the right lung. These findings were confirmed in corrective surgery.
