We present the case of a 3.5-year-old child who presented with recurrent chest infections and fever since birth. Antenatal ultrasonography had shown that she had a congenital cystic malformation of the left lower lobe of her lung. She was initially managed conservatively, and after a couple of years, underwent an uneventful left lower lobectomy via a posterolateral thoracotomy. She did very well after the procedure and her symptoms resolved significantly.
