Thanks dr wael for your good comment.
The term congenital pulmonary venolobar syndrome refers to a wide spec-
trum of pulmonary developmental anomalies that may appear singly or in
combination. The main components of congenital pulmonary venolobar
syndrome are hypogenetic lung (including lobar agenesis, aplasia, or hypo-
plasia), partial anomalous pulmonary venous return, absence of pulmo-
nary artery, pulmonary sequestration, systemic arterialization of lung, ab-
sence of inferior vena cava, and accessory diaphragm.
