Abstract

Mesenchymal hamartoma of the chest wall is a rare benign nonneoplastic lesion of infancy arising from chondro‐osseous tissue. Although its natural history suggests spontaneous regression, we describe a fatal case in a neonate with significant respiratory compromise. We explored the use of electrical impedance tomography to evaluate the dynamic impact of such space occupying lesions on a ventilated infant.
