Rare Lung Diseases Center
Each of the estimated 200 rare lung diseases affect only a small number of children. Collectively, however, they impact many children. The Rare Lung Diseases Center at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia was created to help these children lead a fuller and longer life.
The Division of Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is ranked No. 2 in the country by U.S. News & World Report in its annual ranking of pediatric hospitals. Because of the large number of patients seen in the division — more than 14,000 a year — we have more experience treating children with rare lung diseases than hospitals that see fewer patients.
