Abstract

Bronchopulmonary sequestration (BPS) is a rare congenital malformation of the lower respiratory tract. Most intralobar BPSs are provided with an arterial blood via the thoracic or abdominal aorta but such a supply is rarely found in patients older than 50 years. We report a case of an intralobar BPS with a dual arterial supply from the celiac artery and thoracic aorta in a 50-year-old man presenting with a respiratory tract infection and haemoptysis. To our knowledge, this is the first case report of a BPS supplied by the celiac artery and thoracic aorta in a 50-year-old man.
