A 5-year-old boy who, 1 year prior to admission, had suffered adenovirus-induced pneumonia (Fig. 2.1). Since then, he has experienced frequent episodes of cough. Physical examination on admission revealed decreased breath sounds and some crackles in the left hemithorax. Inspiratory and expiratory AP chest X-rays and lung CT were obtained.
