Williams-Campbell syndrome was first described in 1960 as a rare form of bronchiectasis. Its pathogenesis is characterized by the absence of or markedly diminished bronchial cartilage. We describe a case of a 4-year-old male child in whom respiratory symptoms developed in neonatal period and were found to have histopathological changes consistent with Williams-Campbell syndrome. A brief review of literature has been discussed.
