Congenital Lung Disease
Congenital lung diseases are any disease that disrupts the function and development of the lung and are present at childbirth. They can persist throughout a person’s life or may subside over time. Some of these diseases include:
Asthma is a disorder that causes the airways of the lungs to swell and narrow, leading to wheezing, coughing and shortness of breath.
Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome
Neonatal respiratory distress syndrome is a common lung disorder in premature infants because their lungs aren’t able to make enough surfactant (a liquid that coats the inside of the lungs), which can then cause the lung to collapse.
Bronchopulmonary dysplasia is a chronic lung condition that affects newborn babies who either were put on a breathing machine after birth or were born prematurely.
