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 is ranked among the best in the nation on U.S. News & World Report’s prestigious 2023-24 Honor Roll of Best Children's 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.
