Abstract

We report a case of an intralobar sequestration supplied by a 13-cm aneurysmal vessel originating from the abdominal aorta. The malformation was discovered during a roentgenogram investigation of an abdominal infrarenal aneurysm. During the endovascular repair of the abdominal aneurysm, the giant feeding vessel of the pulmonary sequestration was embolized. Two days later the patient underwent an uneventful resection of the malformation en bloc with the right lower lobe through a standard right thoracotomy.
