The clinical importance of atelectatic conditions of the lung and their proper roentgenological recognition has recently been emphasized. Attention has been called to the frequent occurrence of atelectasis in tuberculosis,1 in bronchiectasis,2, 3, 4 in minor upper respiratory infections.5 Usually the collapse of a whole lobe or nearly a whole lobe has been described. The so-called basal triangular shadow as evidence of lower lobe collapse, the triangular shadow at the apex in atelectasis of the upper lobe, as well as the appearance of the collapsed middle lobe have been described in detail by numerous writers.6, 7, 8, 9, 10 In
