We report on a five-year-old patient with a chronic pneumonia of the upper left lobe of the lung, in whom a broncho-enteric sequestration with ectopic pancreas was found in the mediastinum. Reviewing the literature, different theories on the embryogenesis of this extremely rare anomaly are discussed.
