What is lung collapse (atelectasis)?

Atelectasis, or collapsed lung, is the incomplete expansion of a lung or a portion of a lung or the airlessness or collapse of a lung that had once been expanded. A collapsed lung in an adult often improves on its own but it can lead to infections if it doesn't improve quickly.
