Emphysema, Congenital Lobar

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 08 May 2022

Congenital lobar emphysema is uncommon respiratory disorder in which air can get in the lungs but can not leave, triggering overinflation of the wattles of the lung. Some cases of congenital lobar emphysema may be brought on by autosomal dominant inheritance while others occur for no apparent reason. Congenital lobar emphysema most often affects the upper wattle of the left lung and, less frequently, the middle right lobe. Experience recommends that the earlier the age of start of congenital lobar emphysema, the more likely it is that the symptoms will get worse and lung function will deteriorate.
