Con­gen­ital ­lobar emphy­sema is a ­cause of res­pir­a­tory dis­tress ­during ­infancy ­that may ­present a diag­nostic ­problem. Rec­og­ni­tion of ­this ­entity is ­rewarding, ­because exci­sional ­therapy is ­fairly spe­cific and the ­results are sat­is­fac­tory. We ­present two ­infants ­aged 7 ­weeks and 2 ­days ­with con­gen­ital ­lobar emphy­sema who ­were diag­nosed and ­treated in our insti­tu­tion for the ­past two ­years. Pub­lished ­work is ­reviewed; diag­nostic and treat­ment ­issues are dis­cussed.
