Clinical Brief


An association of unilateral pulmonary agenesis within situ neuroblastoma of adrenal gland in a newborn having multiple congenital anomalies is being reported. Polycystic right kidney and absent left kidney, leading to severe oligohydramnios with secondary Potter’s syndrome and Breech deformation sequence, were additional malformations present in our proposita
