Abstract

A case of bronchopulmonary foregut malformation (BPFM) detected by multislice computed tomography with three-dimensional reconstruction (MSCT/3D) is reported. Concern for aspiration frequently limits the use of radiopaque contrast agents when anomalies of the lung and esophagus are suspected. MSCT/3D may make it possible to assess the communication and spatial relationship of malformed lung and esophagus in the early neonatal period without invasive or contrast radiological procedures such as bronchography or upper gastrointestinal series (UGI).
