A 28-year-old patient was diagnosed by CT scan with intralobar pulmonary sequestration in the left lower lobe associated with cystic images, one of which was probably infected (Fig. 1).

Fig. 1

Lung auscultation was normal; no lymphadenopathies were palpated. Respiratory function tests showed: FVC 5.28 L (97%), FEV1 4.14 L (95%), and IT 98%.

Surgical resection was performed with video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS). The left lower lobe was pathologic in appearance; we identified and resected an artery originating at the thoracic aorta that fed the posterior inferior segment (Fig. 2). Lower lobectomy was completed with no intra- or postoperative complications.
