Congenital emphysema is characterized by the hyperinflation of related lung field, compression of emphysematous lung space to the adjacent normal lung tissue, and mediastinal shift in neonatals. Scoliosis is a condition in which vertebrae are curved laterally. Although there are many factors causing scoliosis, to our knowledge, scoliosis developing secondary to emphysema was not reported in the literature. In this article, we present a scoliosis case which we believe developed due to congenital pulmonary emphysema.
