Abstract

Bronchopulmonary sequestration is a rare congenital abnormality characterized by the presence of a non-functioning mass of lung tissue which receives an aberrant arterial supply from systemic circulation. We describe the case of a 30-year-old man who presented with recurrent episodes of mild hemoptysis. CT angiography revealed a right inferior lobar sequestration supplied by three systemic arteries. The patient underwent thoracotomy with right lower lobectomy and section-ligature of the three abnormal vessels. This case highlights the radiological features as well as the intraoperative appearances of this rare anomaly. Copyright © 2019 SPLF. Published by Elsevier Masson SAS. All rights reserved.
