Chronic lung disease is a known morbidity of congenital diaphragmatic hernia repair. Although described as a diffuse lung process, we present a case of localized lobar emphysema in a child with a congenital diaphragmatic hernia repair successfully treated with lobectomy. We aim to describe this unique clinical manifestation, detail the intraoperative findings, and describe the successful postoperative course.
