A four months old male child was admitted to our hospital with complaints of respiratory distress, fever and cough for past one week. Chest radiograph revealed obliteration of the right hemi diaphragmatic shadow, with haziness of middle and lower zones of right hemi thorax blending with the cardiac outline. Patient was given a full course of antibiotics, but was without much relief. A repeat X-ray chest showed no change [Figure - 1]. Patient was sent for US and CT [Figure - 2] and [Figure - 3] for better delineation of pathology.
