The Authors describe a interesting case of congenital lobar emphysema in a newborn with low-birth weight, asphixya and respiratory distress. The diagnosis was made on the basis of symptoms at onset and early and late radiographic examinations. Mechanical ventilation through selective intubation, allows to resolve the acute respiratory distress, to improve the patient's clinical conditions before surgery with endo-Gia 30V stapler.
