SWYER-JAMES-MACLEOD SYNDROME (SJMS) is a rare pulmonary disorder that manifests as unilateral hyperlucent lung. HRCT is a novel imaging modality to diagnose SJMS since Chest radiographs underestimate this condition. We report a case presentation of SJMS in a 54-year-old male and treated with bronchodilators and i.v antibiotics. In conclusion, only a few with SJMS in adulthood has been reported worldwide.
