Hypoplasia of the lung is a rare congenital condition which can be: a) primary i.e. no apparent cause is found; or b) secondary i.e. associated with other congenital anomalies that are implicated in its pathogenesis. These anomalies may involve the diaphragm, cardiovascular, central nervous, urogenital and musculoskeletal system. Patients usually present in neonatal, infancy or childhood period and very rarely in adulthood. Our patient was an adult having a unilateral hypoplastic lung associated with a ventricular mass and to our knowledge this rare combination has never been reported in the English literature; though there are reports of prenatal or newborns with hypoplastic lung and rhabdomyoma of ventricle who did not survive.
