We report a case of congenital lobar emphysema diagnosed postnatally in an infant of one- day old.Congenital lobar emphysema is characterized by overinflation of pulmonary lobe and is caused by localised bronchial obstruction. The disease may result in severe respiratory distress in early infancy. Histology and serology confirmed infection with syphilis. Syphilis pneumonitis leading to inflammation and obstruction in the bronchial tree may have resulted in the development of congenital Bullous emphysema.

Postnatal dönemde tanı konulan bir günlük infantta konjenital lober amfizem rapor edildi. Konjenital lober amfizem pulmoner lobun aşırı inflamasyonu ile karakterize bir hastalıktır ve lokal bronşial obstruksiyona sebep olur. Bu hastalık erken infant döneminde ciddi solunum sıkıntısına sebep olabilir. Histolojik ve serolojik tetkikler ile sifiliz tanısı doğrulandı. Sifiliz pnömonisi bronşial ağaçta inflamasyon ve obstruksiyona sebep olarak konjenital büllöz amfizem gelişmesine neden olabilir.
