Abstract

Two infants presented with recurrent lung disease early in life. One was premature with bronchopulmonary dysplasia and oxygen dependent. The other had two episodes of pneumonia/severe bronchitis necessitating hospital admission at one and three months. In both of them multiple aortopulmonary collaterals were diagnosed and coil occlusion of these collaterals led to improvement of the clinical status in both of them.
