Abstract

Pulmonary sequestration involves an abnormal pulmonary tissue separated from the normal pulmonary parenchyma, not connected to the tracheobronchial tree and supplied by a systemic artery. A case of intralobar pulmonary sequestration is presented. Case; a 49-year-old male was admitted to our hospital complaining of fever, cough and sputum production. Sputum culture resulted in a large growth ofAspergillus niger. Angiography showed an abnormal blood supply from the abdominal aorta to the right lower lobe. Right lower lobectomy was performed. The postoperative courses are uneventful.
