Abstract:

Intralobar bronchopulmonary sequestration is a relatively uncommon pulmonary disorder that is characterized by nonfunctioning lung tissue that lacks normal connection with the tracheobronchial tree and has a systemic arterial blood supply. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging can provide the necessary information required for diagnosis and pre-operative planning. The following case report reviews the typical clinical presentation and imaging findings in a young adult with intralobar bronchopulmonary sequestration.
