Figure 5 (A-C): (A) Chest radiograph showing hyperlucent left lung field herniating across the midline with preserved vascular markings. This was mistaken as pneumothorax with resultant chest tube insertion. (B) CT axial section lung window shows a hyperinflated left lung segment with attenuated lung markings. (C) Peroperative image shows the hyperinflated left upper lobe (black arrow) in comparison to the normally aerated left lower lobe (white arrow). Diagnosis after surgery confirmed this as a left upper lobe CLE
