Plastic bronchitis (BP) is usually an evolutionary complication of respiratory conditions such as asthma and/ or pre-existing cardiac, and its occurrence in a patient without chronic respiratory pathology remains exceptional. We report the observation of a seven-year-old child, followed for asthma, who presented with a pneumatic appearance of commonplace, massive atelectasis of the entire left lung. Endoscopic exploration of the tracheobronchial tree confirmed the extensive obstruction of the left tree by bronchial mussels. The evolution was favorable after the extraction and spontaneous rejection of intrabronchial mussels.
