Pulmonary Sequestration: A Case Report
Pulmonary sequestration is a relatively rare congenital malformation characterized by an abnormal mass of dysplastic lung tissue. This mass is separated from the bronchopulmonary tree and vascularized by an aberrant systemic artery. Pulmonary sequestration common symptoms are chest pain, persistent dry cough, shortness of breath, hemoptysis, and recurrent attractions of pneumonia. We report a case of a 45-year-old man who suffered from recurrent cough for one year and bleeding with pain in the left chest. He was eventually diagnosed with intralobar pulmonary sequestration. Surgical removal of the sequestration generally has good outcomes.
