    Pulmonary sequestration is a term used to describe an area of embryonic lung tissue supplied by an anomalous systemic artery. Two forms are recognised-extralobar and intralobar-with different clinical presentations. A patient is reported with intralobar pulmonary sequestration in the left lung and colonisation with Aspergillus which was successfully treated by lower lobectomy.
