Figure 6 (A-D): A 7-month-old child with multiple chest tube insertions due to clinical suspicion of pneumothorax. Chest CT images lung window axial and coronal views (A-C) show a slightly hyperinflated left upper lobe with a pneumothorax due to multiple chest tube insertions (black and white arrows). However, on comparison with adjacent lung segments, the hyperinflation is not obvious for definitive diagnosis of CLE. (D) Follow-up CT 3 months later shows hyperinflated left upper lobe with attenuated vascular markings, diagnostic for CLE. Diagnosis was confirmed after surgery
