In brief: Rare

This would be rare.
It could happen following a severe lung infection that caused lung injury and it could be a consequence of prolonged exposure to high oxygen concentrations as might happen to a premature infant. Fortunately infants and small children are still creating new lung that eventually makes up for the areas fibrosed.
