    Horseshoe lung, a rare congenital anomaly, is almost always associated with unilateral (usually right-sided) lung hypoplasia, and, in most cases, in conjunction with the scimitar syndrome. We present an 8-month-old boy with horseshoe lung associated with left-lung hypoplasia, left pulmonary...

    Therapeutic strategies for isolated unilateral absence of a proximal pulmonary artery remain unclear. The natural history of the disease, or thrombosis of primary surgical anastomosis, leads to exclusion of the affected lung with increased risk of intrapulmonary bleeding, impaired quality of...
