Figure 3: a) Coronal reconstruction of chest CT angiography images showing marked hypodensity of the left upper lobe. b) Coronal reconstruction of maximum intensity projection chest CT angiography images showing vascular hypoplasia of the left lung.

Mentions: Enhanced computed tomography (CT) of the chest revealed large bullae in the left upper lobe, measuring up to 7×7×8 cm, and a marked paucity of normal pulmonary vasculature on the left, particularly in the upper lobe (figure 3). These findings were consistent with a diagnosis of Swyer–James–MacLeod syndrome.
