The article presents a case report of a 14-year old boy with a 10-year history of recurring episodes of fever and productive cough. The boy had been treated for pneumonia and received antituberculous therapy. A chest radiograph was performed by the boy, leading to the need for computed tomography of the chest. His sputum analysis for acid-fast bacilli and workup for allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis were found to be negative. He was reassured and discharged with a diagnosis of bronchiectasis with destroyed left lung. It is noted that pseudohorseshoe lung affects the pediatric population.
