Pulmonary sequestration is a congenital lung malformation, defined by dysplastic and non-functioning lung tissue lacking normal tracheobronchial connections and accompanied by an anomalous systemic blood supply. Recognition of anomalous arteries and veins in pulmonary sequestration is paramount to making the correct diagnosis. In contrast to intralobar pulmonary sequestration, where anomalous venous drainage is usually into the pulmonary venous system, the pattern of anomalous venous drainage… CONTINUE READING
