INCIDENTAL FINDING OF INTRALOBAR PULMONARY SEQUESTRATION OF THE LUNG IN 41-YEAR-OLD ADULT MALE
*Dr. Hemanth Gowda M. C. (MBBS) and Dr. Parul Dutta (MD, DMRD)
Pulmonary sequestration is defined as a nonfunctioning mass composed of dysplastic lung parenchyma, embryologically detached from the tracheobronchial tree and receiving its own blood supply from a systemic artery, usually the thoracic or abdominal aorta. It may be intralobar or extralobar depending on the presence of an independent pleural envelope. Here, we present a rare case of incidental intralobar pulmonary sequestration in an adult.
Keywords: Congenital lung conditions, intralobar sequestration, asymptomatic adult, close follow-up.
