Abstract

A review of 41 patients over a 15-year period with a diagnosis of pulmonary sequestration was undertaken. The most common presenting complaint was repeated infections of the sequestrated segment. Two of our patients were symptomatic since the neonatal period. On an average, each patient was admitted three times to the hospital before undergoing surgery. All our patients had abnormal chest x-rays. Two patients had severe purulent infection needing emergency resection of the sequestrated lobe. In our experience, almost all cases of pulmonary sequestration require surgery in the long-term.
