Abstract

Pulmonary sequestration is a rare congenital malformation during embryouic development which results in a cystic mass of nonfunctioning lung tissue. A diagnosis of a pulmonary sequestration has traditionally relied upon identifying the pathological arterial vessels by arteriography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. We reported a case of pulmonary sequestration diagnosed by Doppler sonography and subsequent CT angiography. A 21-year-old-woman admitted to hospital for an investigation of recurrent pneumonia with left lower chest pain. A doppler ultrasound sonography showed an aberrant blood supply from the descending thoracic aorta to the left lower chest lesion. The pulmonary sequestration was confirmed by the subsequent CT angiograph.
