Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A case of idiopathic unilateral hyperlucent lung was demonstrated by a bronchogram, a pulmonary angiogram and pathologic findings. Extensive immunologic evaluation revealed no defect in the patient's host resistance. Although an identical twin and other family members had no pulmonary disease, a polygenic type of inheritance is suggested for this disorder because of the preponderance of affected males which is reported in the literature.
