Swyer-James Syndrome (SJS) is ana rare disease that is also known as unilateral hyperlucent of the lung. This disease may lead to atelectasis and pulmonary hypoplasia. The viral and bacterial respiratory system infections in the childhood are considered as predisposing factors of the chronical bronchial inflammation that leads to SJS. It is characterized by obliteration of the bronchias, air-trapping and lung hypoperfusion. In this report, we describe the case of a 50-year-old male with pneumonia and incidentally detected SJS in the other side of the thorax.

Keywords: Swyer-James Syndrome, unilateral hyperlucent lung, pneumonia, adults
