Pulmonary sequestration, Right lower lobe lobectomy
Medicine and Health Sciences
Pulmonary sequestration is a rare congenital abnormality which is often diagnosed in childhood. There are two types of sequestration which are differentiated by the presence, or lack of pleural lining dividing the aberrant lung tissue from functional lung. Data for the management of this pathology in adults remains scarce. Here we present a case of intralobar pulmonary sequestration in an adult. The management of this patient comprised of surgical treatment involving lobectomy and ligation of the feeding vessel. The patient had an uneventful recovery and final pathology revealed a chronic infection in the sequestration.
